Hero allows you to set up and send automatic email notifications to parents for specific behavior codes in your school's Hero account.
- The email notifications are sent to the guardian email address on file in Hero, which most often comes from your school's Student Information System.
- Please confirm that your school or district is receiving the guardian email address into Hero for use of this feature.

Step 2: Select the setup wheel icon at the bottom of the left menu. Then select "Notification Center."
Step 3: Turn ON Email Notifications and Letters. Configure the Sender Name for the email notifications. Note: In most cases, the Sender Name should be the name of the school.
Step 4: Select the behavior code from the drop-down menu for which you would like to set up an email notification.

In most cases, schools will opt to include an English and Spanish (or other language) translation within the same email.
