Invite Parents to Login

Once you've created profiles for your parents, you'll need to let them know about MC and how to login. It's also a good idea to share some information for them to view when they login for the first time. This can also serve as a way to confirm the parents have logged in successfully. To learn more about setting up the parents' first MC experience, please read Preparing the Environment of MC: Before Inviting Parents. But, for the purposes of this article, we are going to focus on the technical steps to inviting the parents. 

There are 2 ways you can go about this.
Option 1 - Send an automated invitation. This can be done by checking the box to "Send invitation email" when you create the parent's profile (if you chose to create each one manually). Or, you can opt to send out a batch of invitations to all your parents at once (or per classroom or individual parent). To do that, please follow these steps:
  1. Go to <More/Communication Center>. You will land on the Invitations Tab.
  2. Click in the box at the bottom of the page that says "Select Parent Users."
  3. Select a classroom or parent name from the dropdown list. The classroom group will include all parents attached to a child in that classroom.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until all the parents you wish to invite have been selected.
  5. Click the green "Send Invite" button.
The selected users will then receive the following automated email from us:
*Important Note: This automated email comes from a no-reply email address, and may get caught in your parents' spam filters. If this happens and a user does not receive the invitation, move on to Option 2.
Option 2 - Send a personal email from your regular email account with instructions on how to log in (or explain it to them verbally). 
  1. Go to
  2. Enter your email address on file with the school as the username.
  3. Enter the default password of "password" and click "Login."
  4. Once logged in, please change your password to something personal by clicking the down arrow next to your name in the upper left corner and select "My Profile" from the dropdown options. Then click the "Change password" link in the upper right corner and create a new one.
