Feature Focus: SproutAbout® Messaging Options

Communication is a key part of making your school experience a great one.

SproutAbout® is our all-in-one family communications app designed to keep you connected to your child’s classroom and school community. It offers flexible options to help you stay in touch with teachers and leadership in different ways.

Messaging – Direct two-way communication with your teachers and school leaders.

Drop-off and Pick-up Notes – Same-day updates to let the school know if your schedule changes.

Comments and Reactions – Quick ways to respond to your favorite updates from the classroom.

Teachers and school leaders monitor SproutAbout every day for these updates and respond when appropriate. They are also posting activity feed updates, bulletins, and calendar entries to keep you in the loop on what’s happening each day at school.

Let’s explore your options within the Messaging feature. There are two ways to chat with your school in SproutAbout if you want to open a two-way dialogue. Each one may be useful in different circumstances.

  • General comments about
    your child’s day
