Input Parent Information for Alerts

This topic covers how to add parent contact information individually by student.

Parent Alerts are currently available to schools and school districts for an additional cost. If you are interested in using Parent Alerts, contact your school or district administrator to inquire if this feature may be available for your school.

  1. Select Students from the left sidebar.

  2. Hover over the gear icon to the right of the desired student’s name, and select Info to add/edit parent information for the selected student.

  3. In the pop-up window, enter the parent’s cell phone number in the Parent’s Cell Number field in the appropriate format (either 555-123-4567 or 5551234567). This is the number to which the parent will receive text messages from Engrade.

    SMS messaging alerts are currently not available to mobile numbers outside the U.S.

  4. Enter the parent’s email address in the Parent’s Email field.

  5. Click the green Edit Student button at the bottom to save your changes.
