We use “Jag Alerts” as a great, quick effective way of communicating important reminders and information to our students, staff, and parents. The clubs, teams and other sub-groups get a lot of usage out of it too. For example, Ken Hansen, band director, uses his account daily. With nearly 200+ marching band members and staff, he is often sending out reminders. As a band parent myself, I really appreciate the text messages and information.”
