**Important App Updates!!!**

With over 2500 downloads, the EA App has proven to be a great way to communicate news and calendar information to both students and parents.

We wanted to share with you some of the awesome new features that will now be available for us to use: Hall Passes, Digital Student ID's, and Teacher Notifications.

The Hall Passes and Digital Student ID's are not ready yet, as we have to get district approval for these due to the privacy act.

The Teacher Notification feature works similar to Remind 101. Each teacher has received an e-mail from School Info App (SIA) to set up their accounts. If you deleted the e-mail and would still like to set up your account, please let Mrs. Muse know. Please beware that Remind 101 now allows for one-to-one chats between teachers and students. This is not considered to be a safe way to communicate with students. Communications through the Teacher Notifications on the app are one-way, and therefore comply with the electronic communication laws.

We are also pleased to announce that all of the features and content on our App are now available in Spanish. This is an excellent tool for our Spanish-speaking students and parents!

Please encourage your students to download the App if they haven't already!
