Parent/Guardian Access to Google Classroom for Distance Learning

Parent/Guardian Access to Google Classroom

Dear Salpointe Catholic High School families:

Thank you for your continued partnership in getting our students ready for distance learning. By now all parents/guardians should have the ability to track their student’s academic progress through Google Classroom summaries. If you did not already have access, you will have received an email titled “Get Google Classroom email summaries for <student first name>”. The body of the email states: “Ellen Fisher invited you as a guardian in Google Classroom”. You may have also received an email directly from your son/daughter’s teacher.

*Note: Please check your Spam folder if you do not see the invitation in your inbox.

If you haven’t recieved the Google Classroom email, please email Ms. Fisher, Education Technology Coach, at with your child’s name, the name of his/her English teacher and class period. Once a parent accepts an invitation from one teacher, they will be able to see all of the summaries from all classes (you should not need to accept 7 invitations).


Can I be added as a student in Google Classroom so I can see everything my son/daughter does?
No, you cannot. Only people with an email address can join the Google Classroom as a student.

Do I need a Gmail address to accept “Guardian Summaries”?
No, any email works for Guardian Summaries.

How often will I receive the summaries?
Once you accept the invitation, you have the option to choose daily, weekly or no summaries.

What information can I expect in a summary email?
You'll get a summary of your child’s progress including missing work, upcoming work and new teacher posts.

What other resources are there to support students during this Distance Learning?
Teachers will be emailing a general weekly update to parents about how class is going. Students were also emailed a link to which is a great landing place to see ALL of their Google Classroom work in one place. Finally, MyPointe remains a reliable source for keeping track of your student’s progress.

Go Lancers!

Be well,
Ellen Fisher
