Manage Announcements

Manage the School Calendar in SchoolFront

Administrator users can create school announcements for users of every role to see on their SchoolFront home page. They can also viewedit, and delete any existing announcements.

Announcements are created for a specific user group or groups. Groups that can be targeted include parents, students, administrators, and teachers. Announcements are also associated with a date or a time-frame, (i.e. they will be visible by the targeted group starting on a specified date, and will then disappear on a specified date when the announcement is no longer relevant).

Note: If you are not an administrator user but would like to have an announcement added to the system, or see an existing announcement that should be changed or updated, contact one of your school's designated administrator users for help.
