Bloomz allows the parents to sign up using a phone number.
In order for a parent to sign up with a phone number, the parent needs either a text message from the teacher inviting the parent to the Bloomz class/community, or an access code from the teacher.
Text Message Invitation:
If a teacher has added and invited parents with phone numbers, the parent will receive a text message to confirm and validate the Bloomz account. See resources below for more information.
- For Parents: Parent - Signing in with phone number
- Video: Joining a Class through Text
- For Teachers: The teacher adds the parent's phone number to his/ her class
If the teacher shares an access code with the parent, the parent can sign up with a phone number to receive one-way text message updates. The parent will text @[insert access code] to 1-858-BLOOMZ1 (1-858-6691).
TIP: Parents are encouraged to follow the instructions to validate the Bloomz account and download the app. This will allow more 2 way communication, ability to interact with posts and announcements, and the ability to sign up for events.
