Starting February 1st, all district communications will transition to the ClassTag platform, soon known as SchoolStatus. This transition aims to streamline communication and enhance the overall experience for our district.

Activation of Your ClassTag Account:

You should have received a notification from ClassTag via email or SMS text message. To ensure you receive communications in your preferred language and channel, it is crucial to activate your account. Here's what you need to do:

  • Click on the link provided in the text message.
  • Alternatively, click on the orange button in the ClassTag email.

Finalize your ClassTag account promptly to stay connected and informed.

How to Access ClassTag Notifications:

Once your account is activated, you can stay updated with ClassTag notifications in various ways.

  • Email Inbox: Receive updates directly in your email inbox.
  • SMS Messages: Get notifications as SMS messages on your phone.
  • ClassTag Website: Access notifications on our school/district's ClassTag website.
  • Mobile App: Download the ClassTag mobile app by searching "ClassTag" in your app store.

You can update your preferred communications methods under your Account Settings.

Teacher Adoption:

Please be aware that, at this time, not all teachers may use the ClassTag communications tool in their classrooms. However, all district and school-wide communications will be facilitated through the ClassTag platform.
