Pushpage email troubles?

at-a-glance
St. Catherine’s School has changed the system that pushpage email messages are sent this past summer. This change may have resulted in some emails not successfully being delivered or emails being marked as SPAM or Junk. We are in the process of identifying users affected by this change to remedy the situation. We apologize for the inconvenience in this matter.
Here are a couple of steps to eliminate some of the possible errors on your end:
Note: if you have Comcast or Verizon, you may need to sign-in to your web-based email application for your provider to check for SPAM or Junk folders, rather than looking on your phone mail app.
  1. Check your SPAM or Junk folder in your email provider software to see if you have any pushpages from St. Catherine’s School located there. If so, select one email and see if you can set the email as “Not SPAM or Not Junk”. Such pushpage email will have originated from stcatherinesva@myschoolemails.com
  1. Create a new contact in your email system. Add this email to the contact: stcatherinesva@myschoolemails.com
  1. See if you can add a second email contact: stcatherinesva@myschoolapp.com
  1. Compose and send an email to unblockme@blackbaud.com (you must send this from your email account)
Subject line: Unblock Me
Body of the email: Please unblock me so that I may receive emails from St. Catherine’s School: stcatherinesva@myschoolemails.com

Fill our Quick survey (https://goo.gl/forms/PMjIfTmrHGXmd12U2) indicating if you have or have not been receiving pushpage emails.

Annotation for Teachers: Coming Soon to onCampus – Annotation

It makes total sense that wanting to annotate student work online was among our most requested features — teachers want to keep that feedback loop with students open online. Using Annotations in onCampus, this makes the process so much easier.

Teachers will be able to access turned in work via Assignments, and from right within the browser, they’ll be able to click the “Annotate” button to start the process of marking up work. This eliminates the need to download documents. It’s all done within onCampus.

See the story and a video demo here: AnnotationAnnotation

Papers for Parents

Summer is the time of ice cream, camps and vacations. But as parents we want to take care of business so all that family-time can take place.

Papers for Parents on SaintsNet is one great place to get reading lists, permission forms and other needed info for school-related summertime tasks out of the way. However, Papers for Parents has content that rolls out at different times of the summer. To that end, we are developing a schedule to deliver all that great content, with the accuracy you deserve.

Stay tuned for announcements about Papers for Parents content!
