New Communication Tool

NEWSLETTER- Loughborough Public School

 

Schools introduce Communicate broadcast tool

Our school will use a new broadcasting tool to communicate need-to-know information to families in a timely and efficient way. The “Communicate” system will allow us to share important school information with you via text, email or phone message.

We will use this tool for urgent items like event cancellations or school emergencies. We may also use it for sharing information such as upcoming progress reports, school council meetings or special events.

Registered parents/guardians will receive these messages through contact information collected in our student information system. Parents/guardians may choose how to receive these alerts by text message, email or phone call with the exception of emergency events which will always be communicated via all contact methods on file with the school. If parents/guardians choose to receive text messages, they must opt-in due to potential charges from their cell phone carrier.

It is important that parents/guardians ensure schools have the most up-to-date contact information. If your contact information changes during the school year, parents/guardians are asked to contact the school with the updated information.

Communicate does not replace current school communication tools but enhances the way in which schools will provide information to families. In most cases, information will still be provided on school websites, school newsletters, notices home and social media accounts, where applicable.

Parents/guardians should expect to receive notifications from the system soon.
