The need for clear communication between schools and families has never been more important. That is why the St. Bernard Parish Public School System has invested in multiple communications platforms for the upcoming school year.
SchoolStatus: An Easier Way to Connect With Teachers and Administrators
Our educators will continue using the SchoolStatus platform to connect with parents. All teachers, counselors, and administrators throughout our district will be reaching out using this communications tool. This replaced individual teachers’ need to create separate RemindApp or ClassDojo accounts. Teachers and administrators now have the opportunity to communicate directly to parents via text, email, or phone call.
Here are a few answers to some common questions:
- If I need to contact a teacher or administrator, what do I do? Parents or guardians can call their student’s school and leave a message with the front office for a teacher or administrator. The teacher or administrator may call or text back from his/her direct line.
- If I respond to a text, who gets the message? The educator who contacted you! You’re not responding to an entire group. It’s a one-to-one message.
- If I miss a call, can I call the number back? Yes! You may leave a message for the educator who called or text that same number and know you’ll reach the educator who called you.
- How does the system know my phone number or email? SchoolStatus will utilize the contact information in the school’s student system. It is critical that your phone number and email address are accurate and up-to-date. Please contact your school secretary if your contact information has changed.
School and District Websites
Our school and district websites provide families the most up-to-date information regarding school operations, school and district policies, upcoming events, and announcements. The district website can be located by visiting www.sbpsb.org, and individual schools can be found by clicking the school drop-down menu at the top of the page.
Teachers will also be posting important information regarding assignments, tests, class resources, and other helpful reminders and announcements to their Teacher Web Pages. Parents or guardians can find their child’s Teacher Web Page by visiting the “Teachers” channel on their student’s school website.
Social Media Accounts
The St. Bernard Parish Public School System and each individual school utilize Facebook and Twitter to communicate with our families and community. To get the latest information, please “like” our page.
