Hello Beech Tree Families,
Your teachers will be using Talking Points to communicate with you this school year. This is an amazing tool that will deliver their message in your chosen language. You will be able to communicate directly with them as well. Please read the instructions below to understand how it works. Parents can either get text messages or download the Talking Points app.
Parents will register using their cell phone number that is on file in their ParentVUE account. Please make sure the cell number you are using matches the number that you have in your ParentVUE account. Let me stress that the cell phone number you type into the Talking Points app must be the same number that is in your ParentVUE account.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at @email.
Enjoy your day,
Beech Tree ES - SBTS
