  • Attendance: This subscription notifies you of any attendance entry for your student.
  • Grades: This subscription notifies you when any assignment grades below a specified threshold are entered for your student. Grades are scaled as a % from 0 to 100. If your student receives a class assignment or test grade that is below the specified threshold, a notification will be sent to your email address. The threshold should be a number from 0 to 100. For example, an entry of 75 would trigger a notification for any grade entered that scaled below 75%.

Sign Up for Email Notifications

  1. Log into your Parent or Student Aspen Account.
  2. Click on Set Preferences in the upper right.
  3. Click on the Security Tab.
  4. Enter your email address in the Primary Email Address field. (you may also enter a second address in the Alternate Email Address field)
  5. Click OK to close the Preferences window.
