How to Stay Informed: MailChimp, Facebook, Website

Over the last couple of years, our Communication Committee has been steadily working to improve home-school communication.  We have three ways of keeping you informed:

  • Our Website is continuously being improved with help from two alumni parents (Mark Fischer and Brian Koester).  The home page shows the latest updates on the right side, and you can view our realtime newsletter (an up-to-the minute version of Thursday's Backpack) any time, using the button on the right side of the home page.  All articles are available on the website before they are sent by email.
  • MailChimp delivers Thursday's Backpack and all high-priority messages that need to reach the entire school community.  Some clusters and several committees use MailChimp for regular communication as well.  You can learn more about how we use MailChimp emails on our web site.
  • The Friends of Open School Facebook Group is a parent-run, closed-group page for the parents, alumni, teachers, and staff of Open School. Through Friends of Open School Facebook Group, we strive to effectively communicate Friends' events, school notices, school news, exciting successes, and our love for Open School. 
    Our intention is to provide a method of communicating within our community while upholding Open School's Roots of Respect.
