We are excited to announce the launch of the upgraded OpenCheck service located at opencheck.atomwide.com. The new website allows parents to check the status of their children’s schools or view the schools’ scheduled closures for holidays and inset days.
For schools, the site offers a self-contained web application where open and closed information can be entered directly into the built-in administration interface by any users with the OpenCheck updater permission.
A new mobile app, ParentComms:Mobile has been released in conjunction with the launch of the new OpenCheck service. This app is designed to be used by both parents and school staff.
Parents who install the app will automatically receive notifications of school status so they can stay informed effortlessly in case of emergency closure, especially with severe weather being predicted in the coming weeks.
School staff can also be notified of school status changes. Authorised staff will, for the first time, be able to update status of their school(s) directly from the app.
Nominated Contacts will be able to monitor their network usage, receive alerts regarding connectivity issues, and much more.
The app is currently available for Android devices with the iOS version to be released shortly.
