BSO Email Tip

Welcome to 2nd Semester!

Are you looking for an easy way to keep track of your student's work and communication with teachers? Would you like to be more informed and involved in their day to day interactions?

Today's tip comes from a veteran BSO parent. Follow the directions below to set up your BSO student's email account to send you a copy of every email they receive.

1.  Sign into the student's email account.
2.  Click on the gear (Settings) at the top right of the screen, then click on Settings.
3.  Click on the "Filters and Blocked Addresses" tab at the top. 
4.  Click on "Create a New Filter."
5.  In the "From" box in the pop up window, enter the email address you would like to receive copies from.
6.  At the bottom of that pop up window, click on "Create a Filter With This Search."
7.  In the next screen, check the box by "Forward it to:", then click on "Add Address."
8.  In the next screen, you will be able to enter your email address. Be sure to check the button next to the "Forward a Copy of Incoming Mail to" as well as choose "Keep Branson School District RE-82 Mail's Copy in the Inbox" in the drop down box.
9.  Scroll down and save changes.

You should now receive a copy of every email your student receives.
