An app that will tie together school news and information for parents and community members will be launched by the Sartell-St. Stephen school district on Wednesday, Jan. 16. Parents will receive an email with credentials to set up a password-protected portal to track student details such as attendance, lunch account and checked out library books.
Parents and community members will be able to see feeds from the school board, social media and calendars and customize the app for services that are most important to them.
Many of those services are available on the district’s website now, but the app will deliver information to users’ smartphones so they won’t have to go looking for it. In addition, users will be able to message school staff.
There are versions for Android and iPhone available by searching your app store for “Sartell-St. Stephen Schools” starting Jan. 16.
