Send Activation Letters to Parents

No headers

Edline provides your school with a sample Activation Letter (EdlineLetter.rtf), which you can download and send to the parents of your students. Since the file is a word processing document, you will be able to tailor the letter to meet your school’s need. This file can also be used with most common word processing programs to create a mail merge letter.

At the beginning of every school year it is important to notify parents about their Edline account. Your school will want as many parents activated on their Edline accounts as possible to be able to reach the parents whenever required. While it is possible for schools to send a letter regarding Edline activation to parents, Blackboard's many years of working with thousands of schools has shown that schools that distribute activation codes at a school event typically have much higher parental activation rates.
