Stay connected with your parents with Chat


Have an issue? Want to advise a parent? Or, tell them what an awesome job their child has done?

Use iCare Chat, our interactive communication tool, to quickly communicate with parents and teachers to build a stronger school-family relationship. Share important information instantly and start conversations to engage your parents.

iCare Chat keeps both parents and teachers connected. Parents turn to teachers for advice on the academic development of their children. And, teachers learn better about children’s behavioral requirements from parents. Real-time chat gives a smooth and easy platform to interact and share information instantly. The information gathered can also serve as a summary of the behavioral history of children and help parents understand their needs better.
