Emergency Operations Update: Aeries Communications 101

Aeries Communications (managed by SignalKit, so you'll also see that name in places) is the primary conduit for messages between the district, your school/s, your student's teachers, and you. Aeries Communications is only for use by teachers or school/district staff to send messages they would previously have sent by email or phone call.

There should be a Communications menu item immediately to the right of the Home menu running across the top of your Aeries Parent Portal home page. Clicking there will take you to the Communications portal - a new browser tab will open with a SignalKit url. If you do not see that menu item, you (or someone you share this student with) have selected "Do Not Contact" as your notification preference and you will need to contact data@kentfieldschools.org to have your notification preference updated.

To check/update your messages delivery methods, go to the Communications portal. Once there, click on the circle with your initials at the top left of the page to open your personal settings and choose the Notifications page, where you can select your desired delivery method for each type of message.

On the Aeries Parent Portal home page, if you scroll down to the section marked Resources there is a link to help documents /videos for the Aeries Communications system if you'd like to explore more in depth!

Social Media Challenges

During the past week, many parents and staff were concerned about the "momo challenge" that was spreading across the media. Fortunately, this social media challenge was a hoax. Scares like this are a good reminder of the opportunity we all share to learn more about the true dangers that children may encounter on the internet.
