Communication is key!

Use your mobile app to contact different school members, including teachers, or to ask questions over the school's social media accounts. You may also be able to respond to a child's absence. All communication availability is determined at the district and school levels.

If you have any questions about which features are available at your school, contact your schools administrator.

Contact a teacher or staff member
