Turn on weekly emails for parents and guardians

Microsoft Teams for Education can help you keep parents and guardians in the loop on their student's work. Turn on parent/guardian emails to enable a weekly assignment summary for each student in your class.


  • Your IT Administrator must enable this feature for your school and district before you can turn it on or off. Read more IT Admin instructions.

  • If your IT Administrator has already turned on weekly emails, your settings may default to "on." Read the directions below to find out how to adjust the setting for individual classes.

What's in the weekly assignment summaries?

The emails contain a look back over the previous week for any of the student's classes with emails enabled, including the status of turned in or missing work. The summary also includes a look ahead to the next week's due dates so families can plan ahead. The data is private to each individual student and only shared with parents and guardians.
