Dear Members of the Ringwood School Community,
As part of the district’s goal to improve and increase communication with the community, I am pleased to announce our partnership with Apptegy. Apptegy has a multi-faceted approach to communications solutions that will allow Ringwood Schools to better keep you informed.
This weekend, we will launch our new website. The website has a new look to it, but still maintains the structures we are all accustomed to, for example Friday Folders and various document availability. The website is fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and includes all NJ State mandated links to information pertaining to our schools. The site includes a “News” section as well as a “Live Feed” which will be linked to the district’s Twitter account.
Since so many of us use a mobile device for our web browsing and access to content, Apptegy will launch the Ringwood Mobile App this weekend as well. The App will be available in both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
Thrillshare is the interface the district will use to communicate with our families in the future. This will replace the current reverse calling system that was used for various announcements including snow days. No action will need to be taken by any of our families and most will not even realize a difference in how they are contacted.
I am excited about these changes and advances in our digital communications systems. I invite you to point your browser of choice next week and click around the new website. The “Explore” menu will help you find everything you were used to seeing on the old site as well as introducing other new features.
