E-mails and Messages

In addition to posting class announcements and alerts, you can communicate with students and parents by sending e-mails or messages.

E-mails

You can send e-mails to, and receive e-mails from, school staff, students, parents, and groups. Your e-mails are delivered to the recipients' personal e-mail and portal e-mail. You can edit the appearance of your e-mails using the text editor, create an e-mail signature, and send attachments. You can save e-mail drafts and also retrieve e-mails archived from previous years.

When you click the E-Mail & Messages or the E-Mail tab on the Master menu, the page opens with the E-Mail tab displayed.

If you don't see the E-Mail & Messages tab or the E-Mail tab, your PlusPortals administrator has disabled this feature.

The diagram and table below provide an overview of the E-mail tab.

Messages

You can send a message to an individual student and/or parent, or you can send a message to an entire class and/or their parents. Because recipients view messages in their portals, messages provide a means of communicating with students and parents who do not have e-mail accounts.

On the Master menu, click the E-Mail & Messages tab or the Messages tab.

If you don't see the E-Mail & Messages tab or the Messages tab, your PlusPortals administrator has disabled this feature.
