Greenwich Central School District Launches Mobile App
to Keep Community Informed and Involved

Greenwich Central School District has launched an official mobile app designed to enable parents, staff, students and the broader community to stay informed and up-to-date on important issues, information and activities underway within the school community. The free app, which proudly displays the school’s logo, colors and content, can be downloaded for Apple iOS and Android via their respective app stores.
 
Developed in partnership with SchoolMessenger, the leading provider of communication solutions for education, the new app will provide families with 24/7/365 access to calendars, lunch menus, directories, events, sports schedules and more. New information feeds will continue to be made available in the app over the coming school year.
 
“Our new, official mobile app empowers everyone in the community to stay connected and up-to-date on the information that they want and need directly from their mobile device,” said Greenwich Central School District Superintendent Mark Fish. “It’s another great example of our commitment to communication, as we know that in order for families to get involved in school activities and functions they must first be informed of them. We are excited about how our new app will help us communicate more effectively, and hope it leads to a stronger, more connected school community overall.”
 
Highly secure and flexible, the school’s new app is built on a communication platform that permits the district to manage and share content easily. Key features include:
Lunch menus and payments
Sports schedules
Staff Directory
District Calendar and Upcoming Events
SchoolTool Parent Portal
Superintendent’s Blog
 
With budget limitations a reality for schools throughout the nation, SchoolMessenger was able to partner with the district to deliver this affordable new communication channel. In addition, the company will manage hosting and technical updates and provide 24/7 support.
 
“We look forward to continuing to work with the Greenwich Central School District to help reach its goals for effective and accessible communications throughout the entire school community,” said Nate Brogan, vice president of Marketing, SchoolMessenger. “Parents today are busier than ever and rely on their mobile devices to connect them to the information that matters most. SchoolMessenger allows schools and community members to stay connected through a robust mobile platform that will continue to evolve based on their needs.”
