What Do the Emails Look Like?

The Parent Email Digest contains:

  • The date range for which information is displayed.
  • Each of your children's names at the top of the email summary.
  • A summary of each course for the child, including:
    • The child's current grading period grade for each course. 
    • A summary of marked attendance (late, absent, excused).
  • Overdue Submissions, including:
    • How many days the item is past due.
    • The assignment title.
    • The Course in which the item is due.
  • Recent activity, including:
    • The student's posts and updates in courses, assignments, tests/quizzes, and discussions.
    • Recent submissions for assignments and tests/quizzes.

The digest will include up to five Summary items and up to ten Recent Activity items. To view more items than appears in the list, click the More option at the bottom of each area. If you have more than one child association, you can view the Summary and Recent Activity for additional children by scrolling down the digest.

You will receive one Overdue Notifications email for each time that your child fails to submit an item on time. You receive only one notification per late material regardless of how long it remains unsubmitted. 

How do I make sure I receive emails?

To make sure you receive emails, check that your email address is verified to receive emails from Schoology.

  1. Click on the downfacing arrow on the top right of your Schoology account.
  2. Select your account from the list that appears in the dropdown.
  3. Once you're in your account, click on the downfacing arrow and select Account Settings.
  4. If you haven't yet verified your primary email address, you'll see an orange message to Resend verification email. Check the box next to the message and Save Changes.
  5. Once you receive the verification email, click on the link provided in the email to verify your email address.
Note: If you don't receive the email at the correct time of day, check the timezone associated with your account from your Account Settings. If you don't receive any email notifications on a daily or weekly basis after having completed these steps, you can create a ticket with the Support Team for assistance.
