Contact parents for free using apps
SchoolAlerts.ie is designed as an alternative to basic "SMS Text Alert" systems which often incur huge costs for schools. Our belief is that at least one parent in a household will own a smartphone and therefore the school should be able to contact parents for free.
Rather than building our own app, we link up with existing well-known apps. The apps we work with are trusted and familiar to the parent so there is little or no learning curve for them to set this up. We use Viber, Facebook Messenger and Telegram which are well-known and extremely reliable messaging services. We send alerts through these channels to reduce school costs and make life easier for parents. All alerts issued through these apps are free of charge.
The Apps We Use
How It Works
This system is quick and easy to set up for schools. There are four core stages:
- You need to set up your school on SchoolAlerts.ie - Set up a new account here by simply entering your Roll Number.
- You need to import an Excel of your parent's contact information - we help you with this step.
- We will contact parents from your Excel list telling them to link up with SchoolAlerts.ie through their Messenger, Viber or Telegram account so we can contact them for free.
- Finally, you can use the SchoolAlerts.ie website to issue alerts. Alerts can be targeted to the entire list, specific classes or individual parents. All app alerts are free.
We know it can be tricky to set an account for a new service so we are there for you every step of the way. We offer dedicated support to get you up and running and will speak with you over the phone to answer any queries that you may have.
