Communication to families

Limestone Learning Foundation

The Limestone District School Board is enhancing our communications to better serve students and families. Beginning in the spring of 2018, we began introducing a series of new electronic communication tools to improve how we share information.

User Guides

To help users become more familiar with these new tools, please refer to these user guides:

These new tools include:

  • Board and  school websites: School websites have been reorganized to make them more user-friendly including following a similar template so that students, families and staff moving between schools can easily find information. The websites include accessibility requirements, Google translate (80+ languages), and improved search functions and analytics.

  • Communicate broadcast tool: This new tool, which replaces Synrevoice, allows the Board and schools to push important messages to students, families, and staff via text, email or phone message. The tool is linked to the Board’s student information system and families will choose how they wish to receive these alerts.

  • Safe Arrival: This student attendance management system allows families and schools to better report and manage student absences. This tool reduces the time it takes for our school staff to verify student attendance, and respond to unexpected or unplanned student absences. 

  • Board Mobile App: This free app for Smartphones pulls information from Board and school websites including events, news items as well as links to sports schedules, busing information and social media accounts. Users can select “push notifications” when they download the app to receive urgent alerts from the district and your school(s).

These new tools will allow users to:

  • subscribe to school event calendars

  • sync school calendars to your Smartphone

  • receive alerts from your school  via text, email or phone

  • receive reminders from teachers or coaches

  • send and receive attendance info in a more timely way

  • receive push notifications within mobile app

The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
