Parent Access – Weekly Guardian Summaries
As a parent, you will not receive the same level as access to Classroom as your child does. If we have your email address on record, an automatic invitation to sign up for summaries would have been sent to you. If you have not received this, please let us know and we will send it manually.
These summaries 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 teacher
