The app offers a wide menu of information and interactive options. These include: School directions, hours and contact information; events calendar and the option to sync with your personal calendar; breakfast & lunch menus; portals like Home Access Center, EZ Pay, Canvas and School Messenger and district and school push notifications.
In addition to all the current notifications methods, important and time-sensitive district alerts like weather delays and closures will be delivered to app users as a push notification.
The new mobile app was made available to the public just last week, but Lakota school parent Kathy Joiner is already a user.
“As I’m learning about this new app, I’m most excited about everything being accessible with the push of a button. I have three kids in two different schools, and between all the social media outlets, emails, paper communication and website, it has been extremely overwhelming at times for years,” Joiner said.
But now, she said, “I have one place I can now go to quickly and get the info I need.”
To download, search for “Lakota Schools” from your mobile device’s app store.
