To communicate with each other and within classes, Glenview parents use Konstella, a free, secure, and private parent communications platform for schools. This user-friendly system offers a website as well as iPhone and Android apps and includes the following:
- PTA and school-wide announcements
- Classroom updates
- Calendar of Glenview events
- Event reminders (syncs to calendar)
- Volunteer sign-up opportunities
- Private messaging to each other
- Searchable directory of entire school
- Social groups and committees
- File and photo sharing
- Translated communication in multiple languages
If you have accepted your spot at Glenview but haven’t received an invitation to join Konstella, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow the registration link in that invitation and enter your information. You will be prompted to create a password as well as add your child. Be sure to add all your children at Glenview. In August you’ll have a chance to connect each child to the correct classrooms.
IMPORTANT: Once you’ve registered for Konstella, we recommend that you set up your notification preferences. This allows you to control how you receive Konstella communications and how often. You will also be able to set up your privacy preferences. You’ll find this under “Account Settings.”
If you have a smartphone, you can download the Konstella app to receive instant notifications. Konstella allows you to sync Glenview’s calendar with your Google, iPhone, or other online calendars. This way, you will not miss any school-wide or classroom events. Note: The app does not have all the features that the website does, so we recommend visiting Konstella.com to explore the tool.
Konstella streamlines and centralizes communication to create a great experience for everyone in our Glenview community. Please take the time to explore the website, set your notification preferences, and join our community!
