Email trumps school fliers and phone trees these days, but it's not always the fastest way to make contact. Some parents only check their personal email a few times a day or week, or don't sit at the computer. Schoohoo offers the technology for schools to send free messages and alerts to parents, students and faculty via free text messages and email, so the community stays in-the-know whether they sit behind a desk or at a phone.
The alerts are ideal for letting parents know about early dismissals, school closings, emergencies or even PTA meetings. The system is free of charge for schools and supported local and national sponsors. Think it would work for your child's school? Talk to the administration!
