The Evolution of Communication

Does it seem like nothing ever stays the same?! We agree! We are excited to introduce you to our new Alburnett Mobile App. The way people access information seems to be ever changing, and we want to be sure we try to stay responsive to your needs. The Alburnett Mobile App is free to download on the Apple and Google Play app stores. Look for the Pirate head to download.

We highly recommend you consider this new tool to continue to have easy access to updated school information. The app will allow us to pass along information via Push Notifications in a matter of seconds. Please note that we will be transitioning away from the OneCall system in the next couple of months. While OneCall has been a wonderful communication tool for us, the Mobile App will process messages in a more immediate fashion. Once you download the app you will be asked to select which push notifications you wish to receive. All weather related announcements will be pushed through the app. The last date of OneCall service will be October 1.

The app contains many other great features, which will allow you to:

  • Tell us your child will be absent through a simple form
  • Submit daily transportation changes
  • Send us a “Shout-Out” to help us recognize greatness
  • Share news with us to help us stay informed
  • Give us feedback
  • Link directly to make lunch account deposits or pay other fees
  • And much more!

We will continue to post timely news items on the district website and use PowerSchool to send more direct batch emails.

It’s a new communication adventure!

Go Pirates!
