A new smartphone application connects parents and students to their schools.

School info closer at hand

New smartphone app dials in Fraser Cascade schools

There’s a new way to keep in touch with what’s going on in the Fraser Cascade school district.

A free smartphone application has been developed and is now available through iPhone and Android cell phones.

Once downloaded, a user can select the schools for which they want to receive updates. The app is linked to each school’s schedule, news feed, Twitter account, website, phone number and more, and pressing on the links provided will connect the user instantly.

The application also has up to date information about the school district itself. All schools within the district are included, from Boston Bar to Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.

To find the app, search for SD78 Fraser-Cascade in the Google Play store or iTunes.
