In late February WCPSS Child Nutrition Services will begin providing a new service for families. They plan to use School Messenger to make weekly calls on Wednesday afternoons to alert elementary and middle school parents who have low balances on their child’s school meals account to add money to the account.
Each week, they will identify students who are moving to low balances and give their families a brief phone reminder. Other school systems have successfully shared such information with families using School Messenger.
Messages will begin with a simple, English-language message to families and look at ways to improve service from there.
