You should be able to do this with the Yammer group created with Classroom. The students would have to subscribed.
Just an update to say, 6 months on still not possible and not even a reply from Microsoft.

I've recently been looking at Teams on a Dev tenant and was impressed how well they integrated the Conversations, Files and notes areas.  By comparision Classroom is quite basic and just opens various new tabs.

I have this feeling that Microsoft may drop Classroom.

Has there been a date announced for Classroom to move out of beta?  I am working with a school district that uses it quite a bit with their Class Notebook integrations.

Michael, I would agree with this.

Do the users have a sharepoint and exchange license assigned? They need those too. 

We have a need for a school or district staff member to distribute content for various purposes to include assessment information. These staff members have asked for a way for them to distribute content into the various Classroom sites. Is this possible?

It works fine for me... could it be that there has been a service degradation in Education Services (viewable in de the admin center)?

It's great that we can export gardes from activities to Excel. However, it would be even greater if all marks (and possibly comments) could be collated in one master Makrbook for each class. That would make it much easier to see information about students

It all appears to be working again.  I have gotten logged in and made an assignment successfully after they called to state it was operational again.

Same here in central Illinois. I submitted a support request through the Office365 Admin portal and through the edu.uservoice.com site, waiting for a response.
