IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES WHO WILL HAVE SEDGWICK STUDENTS FOR THE 2019/20 SCHOOL YEAR
Thu, Aug 1
Duffy Elementary School
Hello Current and Outgoing Duffy Families!!

We have an IMPORTANT UPDATE for those families who are moving on to SEDGWICK MIDDLE SCHOOL OR who will have students at BOTH Duffy AND Sedgwick for the 2019/20 school year!
 
The Konstella platform will also be utilized by the Sedgwick PTO this school year! Sedgwick PTO chose to utilize this platform due to its familiarity at Duffy AND at Braeburn Elementary, as well as the ability for families with children at  BOTH schools to manage both schools with ONE account. The Sedgwick PTO plans to utilize this communication platform to:
  • Communicate PTO events( grade level parties/events, the annual READ A THON Fundraiser, important guest speakers, etc.)
  • Recruit event specific volunteers or needed contributions toward teacher events( Teacher welcome back lunch, Scholastic Book Fair, Read a Thon, planning and/or chaperoning grade level events etc.)
  • Facilitate electronic PTO Sales and Donations( pending set up)
  • Facilitate family connections via "private messaging" while maintaining personally selected privacy settings
  • Inform and Engage Sedgwick families
I am attaching a screen shot to this communication from the WEB version(not accessible on the mobile app version) on how SEDGWICK families can "Join Another School" from their Duffy settings, allowing you to co- manage Duffy AND Sedgwick communications. In brief, these are the steps to JOIN Sedgwick PTO on Konstella via your Duffy account:
  1.  From Web version(not accessible on the mobile app version) click on the carrot next to your name.
  2. Next you click on "YOUR ROLES"
  3. From there you will see your Duffy account(PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE YOUR DUFFY ACCOUNT IF YOU STILL HAVE A DUFFY STUDENT)
  4. Below your Duffy account you will see "Join Another School".  Click on this and type in SEDGWICK MIDDLE SCHOOL.
  5. If you will have Duffy AND Sedgwick students this year, you will be able to view PTO information/classrooms from BOTH SCHOOLS on your sidebar menu AND your newsfeed.
  6. Once Sedgwick TEAM assignments are mailed around August 15th, please plan to place your children within their assigned team. This will be a great way for your kids to see who is on their team as families register.....an added perk:) A communication about Konstella should be sent from school office the week of August 19th.
  7. IF YOU WILL NO LONGER BE A DUFFY FAMILY, you may choose to "Remove" yourself from Duffy. However, outgoing 5th grade families who do not have additional Duffy students will automatically be removed when we archive the 2018/19 school year.
  8. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at joyandbruce@sbcglobal.net
 
THANK YOU for your help with this transition as we work to ensure all parents are always informed and up to date!
 
Best,
Joy Russell
