Contact your students in Schoolwork
If your school’s IT administrator enabled “FaceTime and Messages” for your school and allowed “Use FaceTime and Messages” access for your role and your students in Apple School Manager, you can contact your students by sending a message or making a FaceTime call, right from the assignment details view.
Note: Before you can send a message or make a call, confirm you and your student are signed in to Messages and FaceTime.
