Yes. You can choose to share your phone number and/or address with your class(es) and/or year group(s), or you can hide them, or remove them completely. It is not possible to share these details with the whole school, but you can opt in to the parent map (provided you have added an address) which will show your approximate location.
Only the ambassador and staff admin user(s) on your site will be able to see your email and address because they need it in order to approve your membership. If you become an admin user yourself, email and address details will be available to other admin users if you/they provide them.
The minimum information that must be shared with your class is your name and the name of your child so that other parents can tell who they are communicating with. You will still be contactable via Classlist and benefit from all the same features even if you hide your actual contact details from other parents.
To hide your contact details go to your profile and click on 'Privacy'. You can tick or untick the box for each category - just remember to click the 'save' button to finish.
To remove your contact details completely from Classlist:
For your phone number go to 'profile' then account and delete the phone number and click 'save'. You can also change your email address in this section, to do this you must verify the new email address from the email that is sent out.
To remove your address go to 'profile' then 'my family' and click the pencil icon. When you save the changes your address will be removed and if you had opted into the school map you will now be opted out and the map no longer be displayed.

Important: although parents are approved to join each Classlist site by other parents or school staff who check they are a genuine parent at the school, Classlist does not vet parents and cannot vouch for them. Members should take the usual common sense precautions when meeting new people.
