We want to provide you with an update on our new two-way communication tool, Rooms. Today the feature was added to our app and our two balanced calendar schools, Graham Elementary & Southern View Elementary have access. We began discussing the implementation and importance of having a two-way communication tool for our families during the second semester of last year. The addition of Rooms gives you the ease of communicating directly with your student’s teachers and to see information that your school’s administration wants to share about upcoming events and more right from your devices. The best part is Rooms is built into our District 186 Website & App. This allows for a one-stop shop when it comes to getting all of your information about the District, your students school and more. You will receive further instruction and information via text | email on the one-time login process during the week of August 14th. For now, we encourage you to download the District 186 app on your device. We appreciate your cooperation as we transition and utilize this new communication tool! If you have any issues please email rdyas@sps186.org or nirlam@sps186.org
