How do I send email to student
Here is some documentation about how to message a student from within Canvas.
How do I send a message to a user in a course in Conversations as a student?
Hello there, Jimmie Bevill...
In addition to the information that Brian Neporadny has given you, I wanted to point you to a previous question I had replied to discussing the terminology "e-mail" within Canvas. I wrote an explanation in the E-Mails topic about a year ago, and it still holds true today. I'll also provide you the links to the instructor-based Guides for your own contact and notification settings since I did not include those Guides in that posting:
How do I add contact methods to receive Canvas notifications as an instructor?
How do I add an additional email address as a contact method in Canvas as an instructor?
How do I add a text (SMS) contact method in Canvas as an instructor?
How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an instructor?
I hope this information is helpful to you, Jimmie.
