The Sustainable School Shop provided this functionality as a additional service that may be helpful for schools to communicate with their students and their parents.
Only schools who are members of the Sustainable School Shop can post a Notice. The Primary Contact or any of the registered users are able to write and post the Notice out.
Posting a Notice is easy. Click on "Add Notice", enter the title in the top text box and then in the main text box just write your message. Then click "Save and Send".
Only parents who are members of the Sustainable School Shop and have selected your school within their Profile will receive the Notices your school posts.
Parents will be alerted that a new notice has been posted on their "Notices" menu item. The notice will be viewable in their Noticeboard tab.
Parents can search all past Notices.
All registered users can view, edit, delete and extend the expiry date of all the past sent Notices for their school.
Notices are set to expire after two weeks. You can extend the expiry date by editing the expiry date field of the notice. Expired notices are still searchable by parents, but will not show up on their profile as "New".
