Sending messages with Edsby

When students want to communicate with a teacher but don’t want to post in the class, they can send a private message. Students cannot delete private messages in Edsby because of the security and compliance reasons unique to K-12. Nor can students unsend or erase Edsby messages. Be aware, administrators are able to see students’ Edsby mailboxes.

Click the envelope icon in the navigation bar to access the inbox and view past messages.

New messages are created by clicking the compose icon in the inbox.

Students can take pictures through a device’s camera, attach existing pictures or photos, videos, Internet links and other files to messages using the icons at the bottom of the message compose window.

Note: most schools and districts intentionally disable Edsby messaging between students.
