Important Things to Remember
1) You can only have one email registered per person.
2) Store your Account ID and Password in a safe place since your account may be locked out if you use an incorrect email ID or password too many times. This is by design for security reasons.
3) You can update your profile under the Manage Profile link on the top right corner of your home page, where you can change your email address (which will require an account re-activation), your password, your email preferences as well as your cell phone number. This is so that we can send out text messages through the system. Please note that we will only use the text function in situations such as school closures or time sensitive reminders.
SCHOOLCUES RULE #1
IF YOU NEED ANY ASSISTANCE, PLEASE CONTACT THE SCHOOL OFFICE. ALL ACCOUNTS WILL BE CONFIRMED DURING PARENT ORIENTATION.
What is SchoolCues?
SchoolCues is a communication tool built specifically for small schools. The company founders built the system based on their own challenges with school communications as parents. SchoolCues is targeted towards busy parents in the technology generation, enhancing parent engagement on a more frequent basis to keep them engaged. It pushes information and content directly into their inbox and to a smart phone app instead of parents having to retrieve information from School websites.
How It Works: One of the big advantages of SchoolCues is that it will deliver messages and notifications directly into your email in addition to your account on the SchoolCues website. You can also control to a limited extent what messages actually get sent to you.
When you sign on to the website you will be presented with a calendar and a list of tasks and tools. The calendar will have the all-school events overlaid with the calendar for your child's classroom. If you have more than one child you will be able to see both classrooms' calendars at the same time, or use the menu to isolate any particular calendar. We will also have no class groups (Committee), and if you belong to that group, you will see those calendar items as well. On the right you will see and actions you need to take (acknowledgements, RSVPs, etc.) You will also see the links to various modules that will allow you to do things like report an absence or late arrival, contact your teacher, etc.
As with any new system, there will always be a learning curve for all of us along with the occasional kink or two. As we learn to use the system, you may receive a few more emails than we intend. Please have patience as we work out the new process.
If you have suggestions please let us know or use the Support button on the SchoolCues pages to send them your feedback. As it's the first of its kind in the market and is rapidly evolving to be a popular tool for small schools to transition to the mobile generation.
Is there an app for that?
Yes, it is $5.99 per user account per school year, paid directly to SchoolCues. It is purely optional - you can sign in directly to your account online anytime. You can download the app (android or iphone) for free. Then to pay to activate, sign in to your account through your browser and click on "manage account". The top right tab says "Purchase app here." Click on the link and follow the instructions to pay $5.99. The app is active for the school year and has to be renewed at the beginning of each year.
