Communication from the Classroom

NeatSchool stations is the best way to have parents sign in/out their students. It is also great,  technology to have staff members sign in/out and automatically track their hours.

But NeatSchool stations is also a great, non intrusive, communication tool to send quick notes from the classroom. Mounted on the classroom wall, is just steps away for a teacher to send a note without needing to use a personal mobile device that could be a personal distraction.

notification about diapers

Every day, hundred of notes are sent from NeatSchool Stations. Parents love the direct, immediate, facts based communication. Here are the themes of some common messages:

  • Request to bring diapers to the school
  • Notification on how long a child slept
  • Request to bring the books back to the library
  • Notification about how much a child ate or how long she slept
  • Request to bring a picture for a project

With just a few clicks the teachers can send notes to specific parents or the entire classroom. They can select from a number of system predefined templates. The Director can also add their own template.

When you define a message you can pick whether it is sent immediately or at the end of the day or both.

NeatSchool stations is one of many ways NeatSchool helps you running your school. Have a great school year!!

Google Calendar Integration Improvements

NeatSchool has supported Google Calendar Integration for a long time. Each Program can have a Calendar for the whole program and one for each department. The Calendar appears in the portal and is also shared with parents and staff in the program or Department.

This past week we improved our Calendar support in two important ways. We added the ability for each Class to have its own Calendar. Automatically, each parent will see only events relevant to his/her class, department and of course the whole Program. We also made Calendar integration for the admin really easy. Just create the calendars if you do not have them ready, then in NeatSchool select the one from a drop down list and you are done!!

Try out our new Calendar Integration and share your experience by posting here or by e-mailing support@neatschool.net.
