High School Seeking Parent Email Addresses
West Side Staff

Parents of high school students are asked to include an email address on the Statement of Handbook Receipt form when completing the first-of-year paperwork. The school increasingly uses email as one of the ways to contact parents. Also, an email address will ensure that parents can receive, if they choose, to receive Guardian Email Summaries from Google Classroom.

“The email summaries will notify parents, either daily or weekly, of missing work or upcoming assignments in a clear, simple email message,” said Matt Irwin, principal. “Parents will also see announcements made by the teacher.”

All High School students are enrolled in Google Classrooms, and in those “classrooms,” teachers send announcements, provide resources, and assign work. Many teachers also require students to submit work through Google Classroom.

The email summaries, which are optional daily or weekly messages, will 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
