West Branch Launches Mobile App

 

Screen Shot 2017-04-17 at 8.03.52 AM.png

In an effort to improve communication the West Branch Local School District is providing parents, students and community members with a new way to stay connected with the schools. The district launched a free mobile app on April 27, 2017. This app allows users to receive customizable school news, school building and district calendars, push notifications, texts messages and more - all directly on their smartphone and mobile devices.
 

The “West Branch Local School District” app is available for download for iPhone and Android users in the App Store, and the online iTunes and Google Play app stores.  Parents are not required to download the app to continue to receive school communications, but app users have access to a number of tools that will make those communications more convenient.

Designed to make it more convenient and easier than ever for parents and families to stay informed the mobile app offers a regularly updated feed of important school news and events.  Users can customize the app by selecting the schools they are most interested i for news and updates. Users can also choose to receive push notifications to quickly get news and updates about school closures and emergencies, events and more.
 

It is our belief that our students are more successful in school when parents are engaged in their learning and school activities. With our new mobile app, individuals can stay connected with our schools and with the activities our students are engaged in every day.

Proposal

WB PreSchool Staff

West Branch Preschool recently received a 5-Star Rating from the State of Ohio. This rating means that West Branch Preschool engages in the highest quality education for all preschool students and families. We would not be able to achieve this honor without our students, parents and especially our amazing staff! West Branch would like to extend a special congratulations to the Preschool Staff, lead teachers, Kathie Menegay, Tricia Barkee and Katie Whaley, assistant teachers, Hannah Dunn, Jackie Mabry and Sarah Francis, as well as program coordinator, Allison Krupko and administrator, Micki Egli. What a wonderful accomplishment by all!
