“It’s everything 308, in your pocket.”
Hutchinson Public Schools is launching a new mobile app that helps students, parents, and community members know what is happening on campus, right from their phones.
“We know that families are using smartphones as a primary means to communicate,” said Mike Folks, Hutchinson USD 308 superintendent. “That’s why we’ve created an app that is custom-built for mobile. On the app, you can find cafeteria menus, real-time sports scores, contact information for staff and event information.”
The app is free from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
The app provides three main benefits. First, families, students and the public will know what is going on at school. For example, they will see real-time updates from the website’s live feed about stories happening inside the classroom, on the football field or in the art studio.
Second, families and the public can connect with teachers and administrators. For example, learn about parent-teacher conferences, access staff contact information and quickly find out about district news.
Finally, families can stay up-to-date with school information such as receiving updates about events occurring on campus, the daily cafeteria menu, required forms and even emergency notifications.
In conjunction with the app, the district’s website has a new look and feel. The website is available at www.usd308.com.
