Field Trip Coming Up? Manage the Day with SendTree


Whether you're a teacher or the parent of a young child, one thing that kids love hearing is, “we’re going on a field trip.”

For teachers and chaperons, field trips can feel a bit like organized chaos; but with a group text messaging service, like SendTree, that no longer has to be the case.

Teachers can download the SendTree Android App to quickly and effortlessly communicate with chaperons while on the go. (Chaperons don't worry about downloading anything - you just need to share your cell phone number with teacher.)  Now, no matter when a teacher needs to send a bulk text message, all the chaperons and guardians will receive the message directly on their cell phone. 

Added bonus: Teachers can also schedule posts ahead of time from their computer, so the text messages are delivered periodically, throughout the day. 

Within minutes teachers can instantly send a group text message that reminds, notifies, or alerts everyone on their contact list of: 
  • an overview of the day
  • last minute traffic or weather delays
  • pick-up and drop-off schedule to the event
  • lunch or meet-up reminders 
  • reminders about food allergies any student(s) may have 
  • and any other important information that pops up during the day.
