Do you remember giving a letter to your parents from the school? How long it took for the message to get across? Vital information was lost over the years due to messages not being delivered, until the SMS came along.
Now, as a staff member at a school, you are able to contact parents and other staff members instantly, and cost-efficiently. Let’s dig in to a few ways that schools are using SMS:
Cancellations: Make sure parents know that the game after school has been cancelled because of the rain. An unanswered phone call does not get the message across, whilst an SMS does.
Event reminders: Remind parents about events happening after school. A simple reminder will make sure your events are well attended.
Staff meetings: Let your staff know if impromptu meetings. With instant delivery, and a 99% open rate, your SMS is bound to be read in no time.
