As a parent, your child’s teacher might share files privately with you. This could be a photo of your child, a video, a class report, or an exam that the teacher wants your child to complete.

You may also want to share something with your child’s teacher that you wouldn’t want to share with other parents.

Great news! We now have what we call a “Backpack” section where you can view any files shared by the teacher with you privately and upload files you want to share with only the teacher.

Uploading a file in your child's Backpack

To access your child’s backpack, please follow these steps:

1. Click the three lines on the upper left side.

2. Click the class name.

3. Click “Library”.

4. Click "Backpacks".

5. Click the box that has your child’s name.

6. Drag and drop the file OR click “Click here” and choose the file that you want to upload from your computer or mobile device.

7. Click “Save”.

8. You will now see the file that you’ve shared on the “File” section.

Viewing the file that was shared by your child's teacher

1. Click the three lines on the upper left side.

2. Click the class name.

3. Click “Library”.

4. Click "Backpacks".

5. Click the box that has your child’s name.

How will I get notified if there are any new files uploaded by the teacher?

If the teacher uploaded a new file on your child's Backpack, a bell icon will show up on the "Library" tab.

If you click on “Backpack” tab, a “Upd” flag will be added on your child’s backpack.

Once you click on your child’s backpack, there will be a “New” flag on the most recent file that your child’s teacher has uploaded.

There will also be a red dot on the green bell icon on the upper right side.

Clicking on the green button will show that the teacher has updated your child’s backpack. Clicking on the notification will redirect you to your child’s backpack where you can see the new file.

If the app has been installed on your mobile device, a push notification will also be sent.

NOTES:

  • At the end of each hour (e.g., 4:59 pm, 5:59 pm), the system will also send an email notification with the list of unseen files added in your child's Backpack.
  • The system won't send any SMS notifications if you set your notification method to SMS.
