Teachers can select more than one recipient when composing a new message.
Step 1: Click on "new message" and then click on “select recipients” to open a drop-down list of all students. You can choose to send a message to one or multiple recipients by checking the box next to their names.
Step 2: Compose the message and click 'send.'
You can also open a class, checkbox the families that you wish to reach out to, and click "message" to initiate a direct message with those contacts. This method is only good for individual classes so you can’t select across classes.
