LivingTree Family Phone Alerts

How do you stay in touch with families in your class, school and district? LivingTree has just added family phone alerts to keep schools and families connected throughout the school year. LivingTree is a family engagement tool for PreK-12 schools. It’s already used by schools across the country and now with their new phone alert capability, all communications sent to families can be delivered through the LivingTree platform.

With phone alerts, you can also reach families on the device they carry with them all the time. These voice messages go straight to a parent’s phone number of choice with the ability opt in and opt out. LivingTree phone alerts add voice capability to the ways schools already use the LivingTree platform to communicate with families. With phone alerts there is now also a new layer of communication. This is in addition to the texting, multimedia, private messaging, and two way conversation features LivingTree already includes in their platform.

The new phone alert system lets school administrators send phone alerts in the same way they usually share conversation posts in LivingTree. Parents can certainly establish their own preferences. This way phone alerts go to recipients in a few different forms. This includes the options of a message post, email notification, mobile notification (for mobile app users), and/or a phone call. If families choose the phone call option their message will come through as a voicemail if there isn’t any answer. Since there is the option for voice translation in 26 languages and text translation to more than 100 languages, families will receive the phone alert call or message in their preferred language.

Family Communication

LivingTree is the only hierarchical private social network ready for school districts. It also provides two-way communication to increase parent, family and community engagement. The team at LivingTree wanted to make sure there is a natural communication flow with a unique hierarchical model. This means districts can seamlessly communicate, coordinate, and engage up, down, and across their very own private and secure network. LivingTree works from any device. It is totally custom for each school and school district. This tool ensures instant, consistent communication (with translation into over 100 languages) for families and parents everywhere.

The LivingTree family engagement tool is can teachers and schools keep families up-to-date through out the school year. To get started, visit LivingTree’s website to learn more and also sign up!
