Now available: The Buncombe County Schools Mobile App

BCS App Release Announcement
 
We're committed to bringing our families and community members the information they need, when they need it. With the new Buncombe County Schools mobile app for iOS and Android devices, you can follow your child's school newsfeed, check lunchroom menus, find school contact information and locations, receive important up-to-date push notifications about weather and safety information, and more! We've assembled some of the most popular resources for our parents and made them even easier to find from your smartphone.

Following your child's school is easy! During setup, select all of the schools you wish to add to your customized newsfeed and to receive notifications from those schools. If you want to change this later, start from the home screen with the photos (1st image above). Then, click the menu button in the upper left to reveal the menu (2nd image above), and select Settings at the bottom. Choose "Follow Schools" and toggle to the switch on for each school you want to follow (3rd image above). That's it!

Push Notifications! The new BCS app is just one more way to get important messages about weather and safety related information. Make sure you have enabled "push notifications" on your phone for the app, and when we send out district-wide information about school delays and closures, you'll get it right on your phone. Be sure to also follow your child's school under Settings in case a message is sent to only one location. (Please note that this is different than our other communication tool, Contact Manager by SchoolMessenger, which allows you to add email addresses and phone numbers to our mass email, SMS / text, and automated phone call announcements.)

Find Schools Near You! Whether you need a directory with phone numbers or want to search for a Buncombe County School nearby based on your address, we've got you covered! For addresses and phone number information, select "Find Your School" from the home page of the app. To use the location search feature, choose "School Near Me (GIS)" in the menu located in the upper left of the home screen. Make sure your Location Services are enabled on your device for this feature to work properly.

Parent Quick Links: These are some of the more commonly used features for parents. Why search online or turn your computer on when you can launch them from here?

The BCS Mobile App is maintained by the Communications Department. Email communications@bcsemail.org for feedback and suggestions!
