Through a feature called ‘stories’, parents and students receive updates and notifications from teachers and the school in real time. It allows to send a variety of message types, ranging from text messages to students’ grades, absence reports, calendar events and much more.

In addition to stories, where a flow of notifications is received, the app also features chats and groups. Unlike stories, these offer two-way messaging, which makes them ideal to work in groups and facilitate the information exchange with students and families.

You can start sending messages and stories in a matter of minutes. And it is completely free of charge for parents and students!
