Social Schools: This is the App we use to communicate with parents. All our teachers have access to this App, so you can expect messages from the school and class teachers, but also the Mother Tongue teachers, Language 2 teachers, DAL, etc. You will receive an invitation via email to activate your account. We ask you to then complete the section regarding image preferences, so that the teacher knows when and where photo's of your child can be published/used. 
Parent Portal: You will also receive an email to activate your login for the parent portal on our website. This is where you can find information about procedures, protocols, etc.
