Parent Notifications from Teachers

robot call

Buckley Community Schools is happy to announce a new feature available to teachers, parent contact through PowerSchool! Teacher now have the ability to contact parents through PowerSchool for all student within their class. They can contact you by phone, email, and even texting. There may be a few questions that arise as more teachers begin to utilize this feature. We hope to answer some of those questions.

1. I received a strange message from the school. It was some strange robot voice reading a message. What is that about?

The system is built in a way that the teacher simply types in their message to the system and the text is converted to speech when it is sent. The upside is that it is very easy and quick for teachers to send messages. The downside is the robot voice you are asking about. While it may be jarring at first to hear it, we assure you that the entire message is read with accuracy at a pace that is understandable. Please be patient with the system during this time.

2. How do we receive emails?

Emailing is built into the system as a way to communicate with you. All we need is your email address in the system and it will work. If the teacher chooses to send an email as part of the message, it will arrive in your inbox and you can read it at your leisure. If you reply to the email, you will be replying directly to the teacher.

3. Did I read it right in the first paragraph that I can also receive texts from the teacher?

You did read that right. Just like emailing and voice calls, the system is built with the ability to text any contacts in the system. We need your permission to text you plus a phone number that can receive text messaging. Keep in mind that these texts do count against any monthly allotment you have for texting.

 

We appreciate your patience during this transition time. The system has already been successful for Friday Bear-Newsessities, sports changes, and school closings. We know that the teacher side of parent contacts will be a great addition to our continued goal of communication with all parents and community members.

The MCC women’s cross country team opened their season Saturday at the Vanderbilt Invitational hosted by Hope College at Ridgepoint Community Church.  Temperatures soared to 80 degrees by race time with very high humidity.  Combining that with a difficult course proved to slow down the field some, but the Lady Jayhawks persevered!  MCC took 4th with 102 points, only getting beat by Hope and Adrian (NCAA DIII schools) and Cornerstone (NAIA school).  Leading the way and earning an award for her 12th place finish out of 58 finishers was freshman Deanna Near (Montague HS) finishing in a time of 20:25.  “Deanna ran a really aggressive race early on and actually took the lead from the gun,” said Coach Dan Fishel.  “She’s been a great leader-by-example for the rest of the team, and the front group of ladies have really worked hard to stay with her and make themselves better in the process.”  Rounding out the top 7 in order were sophomore Andrea Lavigne (Mason County Central HS), freshman Sabrina Smith (Hart HS), freshman Andie Young (Grand Haven HS), freshman Marlee Harris (Buckley HS), freshman Raquel Zavala (Muskegon HS), and sophomore Brielle Johnson (North Muskegon HS).  “We didn’t run perfect races and the women are pretty tired from the last 3 weeks of intense training, but this is the best first meet team finish the women have had. I hope this great start leads into an outstanding season!”  Here’s a link to the women’s results:  http://athletics.hope.edu/sports/wxc/2014-15/files/Vanderbilt_Invitational14_WomenAllResults.htm  The women’s cross country team races next on Friday at the Jets Invitational hosted by Jackson Community College.  Go Jayhawks!
