Communicate before, throughout and after the school day
Many visitors your school may come to the door but rarely go inside - parents for example. Having an uninvasive way to communicate with parents everyday saves time and creates a more cohesive school community.
By installing weather proof screens or screens in weather proof enclosures at common drop off points and places where people gather gives you another opportunity to reach out to the school community.
What information can I display in the playground?
