TADPOLES is Here!

 

Dear Parents,

Keeping you involved with the school and your child’s daily experiences has always been a priority of ours.  We are very excited to be using a digital communication program called Tadpoles! We will not be using written daily sheets for the children, we will use Tadpoles exclusively.  Please be sure we have your correct email address on file should you make changes.

From Tadpoles, teachers can send photos and videos to allow you to see a glimpse into your child’s day! Teachers will also be creating a daily report for each child. This daily report will keep you informed of the activities for your child each day, the same information from our paper daily sheets.  All photos, videos, and daily reports are emailed to you directly and you can also access them via the free Tadpoles Parent app, available on Apple and Android devices, or, online at  www.tadpoles.com as well!

To create your account online (same login used for both website and app), please use the following steps:

      -       Visit www.tadpoles.com and click login at the top right

-       Select Parents on the left

-       Choose Sign up under “use a Tadpoles account” 

-       Use the email address that is currently on file with our school

                o   If it’s a Gmail account, you can sign right in to the account

    o   If it’s not a Gmail account, enter your email, choose Submit and check your email for the link to establish your password.

Tadpoles will continue to strengthen our home-to-school connection.  From your Tadpoles parent account, via the app or web, you will be able to enter in morning drop off notes for your child’s teachers, mark your child absent, and/or add any additional notes to be communicated to the school.

Each classroom will be equipped with an iPad Mini which will be specifically used for the Tadpoles program.  If you see a teacher on what looks like a phone or tablet, rest assured they are only using the device to input information into Tadpoles. The devices are locked down, giving teachers access to only the Tadpoles software.

We consider all information captured within Tadpoles to be a private communication between our school and our families.  No personal information is shared with any external parties and as a parent you will only receive information specifically about your child. The confidentiality of all information is maintained through the security features of the Tadpoles software.

We are very excited to begin utilizing Tadpoles and know it will positively impact the engagement of our families and our home-to-school connection. We feel confident that you will love Tadpoles and the level of involvement it allows you to have with your child’s daily experiences while at our school.

We are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about this exciting program!
