Remember, make technology work for you!

Keep track of your children with Life360

There is a great app that will keep family circles in touch when divided in groups. Life360 offers tracking, messaging, and more through this app. Use it with your kids this Halloween if they have phone devices.

You can use this on field trips as well for school functions.
