New Parent Messaging Board for the Parent Portal

QuickSchools is excited to announce our new Parent Messaging Board, available on our new HTML5 interface. For those of you still on our older Flash version, here’s a good reason to upgrade the HTML5 version.

When a parent first logs into their Parent Portal, here’s what they can see:

In the future, we may be able to post messages to specific groups of parents (perhaps based on the student’s class). Let us know what other improvements you think might be a good additional to this.
