Teachers can disable replies from individual family members. Family members whose replies have been disabled will see a note in the message compose box in the Inbox that says 'Replies have been disabled for this class.'

  1. Tap the wrench in the top right corner.
  2. Scroll down and tap 'Manage families.'
  3. Tap the student whose family member you want to disable replies from.
  4. Turn 'Allow Replies in Inbox' to OFF.

Please note: Disabling replies is a 1:1 setting. If replies need to be disabled for all teachers in a class, each co-teacher in the class will need to toggle off family member replies in their own teacher account.
