Messaging App only
Brightwheel was created to streamline your parent communication. We have many updates to come around parent messaging. All messages are sent through the app and we do not use email.
In the future we hope to enable opportunities for newsletters and more two-way communication. Please note that messaging is a Premium feature.
Parents can send a short message with a character limit to teachers. For more detailed instructions, view the help article here.
For daily updates, we still recommend using the notes feature. However, if you would like to send a message, alert, or reminder to a room or specific parent, you can use the messaging feature. For more detailed instructions, view the help article here.
You can also message all of your parents at once with our Message All Parents feature. This is perfect for announcing school closures, events, etc. For more detailed instructions, see our help article here.
