Designed for teachers, by teachers.
Communicate without sharing phone numbers
Teachers can keep everyone safe and aware of plans by communicating via whole group broadcasts or individual messages. Remind students when and where you're meeting or let parents know you're stuck in traffic - all at a press of a button.
Ensure access to up-to-date trip information
Remove the potential for students to forget the meeting spot as they can access up-to-date itinerary details and trip logistics. Direct messaging between student and chaperone (not between students) means if they do get lost, they can contact you immediately.
Provide information for parents
Parents can receive updates from chaperones and view trip details. If you're stuck in traffic, a broadcast message to all parents means everyone knows the new ETA. One-way communication with parents is also coming soon in our new premium features.
We are currently working on our premium product which will offer a wide range of advanced communication features, information sharing and emergency features.
