|Send Email (for Teachers)|
On the screen in Gradebook Mode, teachers can send grades and announcements to their students and their parents/contacts. (Not available for the Free version.) Options include:
To — Select one student, a whole class, or several classes, and send to just students or parents or both.
Bcc — Optionally send a copy of the email to someone else. If you send an email for just one student, it sends a blind copy of the whole email. But if you select multiple students, it sends just a single copy of the "Note for everyone" (if any), rather than copies of every student's email, because that would flood their inbox. You can see this in the Preview.
Subject — It automatically appends the student's name to the subject, so it's easier for parents/contacts if they receive email for multiple students in the school.
Message — Select what you want included in each email:
Attachments — You can post files online and include a link to your files in your email. This is not actually an attachment, so do not delete or rename your file till everyone has a chance to download it.
Spanish Translation — Email can be translated to Spanish automatically. See Bilingual
View Log — Click the "View Log" button to see all the email messages you have sent. Messages are saved for 12 months, then they are deleted automatically. Admins can see your messages, but other teachers cannot. You can see also any automatic alerts.
Bounced Email — Click the "View Log" button to see if any messages bounced back because the address was invalid. Note, it also erases the invalid email address from the student's record. The screen shows which email addresses were deleted recently.
