• Parents in Onslow County now have a closer link to what is happening in their child’s school.

    The school system is rolling out a new mobile application. This app simplifies and personalizes information that OCS parents, staff and community members can access on-the-go.

    The app is part of SchoolMessenger, the school’s web host provider. It is now available for download at the App Store and at Google Play. The app pulls information from the district website, school sites and social media feeds in order to keep information current. Users have the ability to customize the app so they only see information for the schools they are interested in. Through the app parents will also be able to access the Parent Portal, Student Portal, and alerts.

    This is just one more way parents can stay up to date with news from their child’s school including the school menu, upcoming events and other information, and it can be downloaded free. The app aggregates messages and calendar dates from the district as well as selected schools, so parents can now access both system and school information in one place. Our parents with students in multiple schools can now get the latest news from all locations in a single app.

    “We are constantly working to enhance transparency and collaboration with our stakeholders, and this is an additional tool to support communication flow,” Superintendent Rick Stout said.

    “We hope you will download the free app today.”
