With a new mobile app launched Aug. 14, Walsingham Academy is among the first schools in the area to offer an on-the-go way for students, family members and alumni to keep up with everything going on at the school.
Simply dubbed the "Walsingham App," students, parents, teachers, alumni and other friends of the school can access the full school calendar, read news on the school's blog, view pictures and video clips from school events, get notifications such as school closures or sports practice cancellations, and more. Versions for both iOS and Android systems are available.Walsingham already provides all students with iPads, so the move made sense, according to Cindy Rudy, the school's digital technology coordinator.
"We’re on the go," Rudy said in an interview Monday. "Parents are out with students. They’re busy. In order to reach them more rapidly with the important things people need to know, this was the way to go."Click here to read the complete story by Christine Sampson, and click here to download the Walsingham App.
