Advanced Options: Deliver to Students AND their Parents
When we have a specific group of students that we want to send both they and their parents a message, we send it to the students first and then make a copy, choose the students as recipients again and click the Advanced Option "Deliver to Students of Parents" (which then doesn't send the message to the students at all. Would be helpful if we could send to these students and their parents with another option "Deliver to Students and their Parents"

This is a major flaw in how Parentlink works.
Example: Highschools want to send out an email and text to students who need to attend detention.
The Secretary finds the individual students, adds them as recipients... but they also want the parents of those students to get the message too.
Right now, we have to send two separate messages. This requires searching for or uploading the students again.
We should be able to choose "Send to Parents" & "Send to Student"
Please make this change. Thank you

Please add this feature! It is a big miss for high schools and even our middle school where we need to send students information and copy their parents in order to hold them accountable. Right now, we have to send two messages out.
