Dear Parents and Guardians,As we approach the start of the 2017-18 school year, we’re excited to announce that we are now offering online access to our O’Dowd parent directory through a partnership with FourLeaf.* Some key advantages to our new directory are:
Convenience. Access from any device, anytime, anywhere. On your smartphone, tap to call, text, email or get directions (:note: directions can be accessed if the parent has added their home address to contact information; see “up-to-date and in control,” below).
Search Functions. One box search makes finding what you’re looking for quick and easy. You may search by student’s name or parent’s name to obtain parent contact information.
Up-to-date and in control. O’Dowd has uploaded parents’ cell phone, home phone and email address information (note: parents who have opted out of sharing information in the school registration form, will not have their information included). Parents control what information is viewable to others and can update their information at any time. You can also add information like your home address if you wish.
Privacy & Security. Each adult in Fourleaf has their own account based on an email address and secure password. The information contained in Fourleaf is for use by families and staff of our school for non-commercial purposes only. It is NOT available to the general public.
Communications. Dragon Parents will be using this service to push notifications or communication at a later date. In the meantime, please choose how you want to receive important notices (email, text, both, none) in your settings.
You will be receiving an email and/or text from Fourleaf to activate your Fourleaf account at the beginning of August. Please click on the link to view your listing, make corrections and/or additions, and specify how you would like to receive important communications sent through the directory. Please check your spam folder if you did not receive the email.
Parents who already have an account with Fourleaf from another school will not receive an activation message – you will still be able to access your information on August 1st.
If you would like to join the school directory, please visit our online O’Dowd help center.
If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. * We are partnering with Fourleaf Networks, a San Francisco Bay Area company founded in 2012. They specialize in creating trusted private networks that help schools create more connected, efficient, and involved parent communities. To learn more, visit their website www.fourleaf.net.
