Template Guide and Letter
Letting Parents know about an Conference or Event
The system does not send a notification to parents that a new conference or event is available, it only sends confirmations of bookings, etc. For the initial notification we provide this Template Letter for schools to customise and send out to parents via the school's normal method of communication:
If you've been using the system for a while, and your parents are familiar with how it works, you could also use Reminders to alert parents to the fact that they can book on a new conference.
Giving Parents a Guide to How to Log In and Use the System
For conferences we also provide a Word document Parent Guide, in a choice of English or Spanish, that shows them how to log in to the system - this is automatically customised for each conference, and can be further edited if you wish. You can download it via Conferences > Go To Conference and then on the Dashboard in the Common Actions box clicking Download Parent Guide:
If your evening is going to be held via Video Appointments you should also provide the parents with this guide: Parent Guide for Video Appointments. They do not need to be logged in to see this.
