Keep students on task by using assignment reminders. They are automatically sent to students when their homework lessons or tests are due or late.
Go to the Grade Book and open Tools, then Communications and Reminders. Select a section. You will be asked to give your reminders template a name. Feel free to use this template for other sections as well.
Select the type of reminder you want to set. You can personalize it by using your own message and the bracket tokens. Make sure to save your changes, and then your students will receive these messages to help them stay on track!
