SLACK Communication Update 2020 for the VCHS Band: New Communication Update

This year we will be trying the app “Slack” as a means of communication. This app is easy to use and we will be able to effectively communicate to all who are on it. We will NOT be utilizing “Remind” any longer. To become included in the band reminders on Slack, please follow these steps: 

 


The chat function is open to everyone, however we ask that only those talked to by staff post messages to keep the reminders clear and accessible. If you ever have any questions, you can respond to posted messages or chat with staff directly. 


IMPORTANT: Once you have joined the chat, click on the ( i ) icon in the top right corner. There you can ensure notifications are set to every message and the channel is not muted to ensure you don't miss a thing!”


If any questions arise, please e-mail me at kara.whitaker@usd262.net. Thanks!
