Bloomz - Communication
We have started our Bloomz roll out and your teachers should have sent you a message you could access through your email. Bloomz will support our continual communication with sending messages, blast, calendar invites, and a consistent feed of what is happening in the classroom. You can additionally add the “Bloomz app” to your phone for an even more efficient way to communicate with your classroom teachers.
See the following form for information: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LJKtUxefBWqC3bmM1pgnwjZfFxcodgvS/view?usp=sharing
As we continue to expand our capabilities with Bloomz, we will continue to keep you informed.
