For parents/guardians to receive email summaries of the activity in Google Classroom, teachers must first enable this feature for their Classroom space.  By default, this feature is turned off so even though a parent email might be listed in the "People" tab, the parent is not receiving emails for your class until the teacher enables it.  Email summaries to parents include:

  • Missing work—Work that’s late at the time the email was sent
  • Upcoming work—Work that’s due today and tomorrow (for daily emails) or work that’s due in the upcoming week (for weekly emails)
  • Class activity—Announcements, assignments, and questions recently posted by teachers

To learn more about how to enable email summaries for your class, add parents and view what an email summary looks like, visit the Google Classroom Help page or visit our FAQs for most frequently asked questions on guardian email summaries.
