Pendleton School District: There's an App For That

Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, OR - Want to know what's going on at the Pendleton School District? There's an app for that. 

The school district is launching a free mobile app, "Pendleton SD" now available on both Apple and Android devices. 

Leaders at the schools say this is the first district in the region to have a mobile app.

"Improving communication has been a goal for our school board, and we're excited to have another tool to communicate with parents and the community," said Tricia Mooney, Assistant Superintendent of the Pendleton School District. "The exciting thing about a mobile app is that it allows parents and community members access to information about the schools whenever they want, wherever they are."

The mobile app, developed by School Messenger, the district's parent notification system, in coordination with InterMountain ESD, pulls information from the District's web site into a more mobile-friendly application easy to view on cell phones and tablets. 

Students, staff, parents and community members can now download the free app to gain instant access to school calendars, school lunch payments, student grades, news, a full directory and information on individual schools.

Members of the Pendleton community looking to find more information about the November 5th Pendleton School District General Obligation Bond can now do so on the go, with facts about the bond available right on the app's home page.

Parents will be able to receive "push notifications" from the District with the app, meaning they can receive instant alerts on their mobile devices when important information about the schools is released, such as a closure or delay due to inclement weather.

The school district says the app will update frequently all year, so those who download it will always have the latest information about Pendleton schools.
