The student’s activity feed is where student contacts with Parent and Family permissions will be able to keep up-to-date on all the things the student does throughout the day that the school has logged. This may include pictures, videos, check-in/out records, and any number of learning activities. If preferred, a daily email can be enabled to view these activities directly in the contact’s inbox.
