The NGFS app is a valuable resource for our community. Frequently accessed sites and information are available ... right at your fingertips! Please be sure to install the App on your phone and subscribe to the groups that affect your family so you receive app notifications. Check your phone's settings to ensure notifications are enabled.

The next time you access the app, you will be prompted to re-onboard (through the welcome screen). Follow the prompts to select the correct Divisions and Groups for this year.

Recommended Groups to select:
  • "Schoolwide" - as an App user, you will receive all whole-school related notifications (for example: reminder of early dismissal)
  • Under “Schoolwide” - select groups that apply to your student(s)
  • Under "Grades" - select all that are applicable to your family (for example: if you have a kindergarten and third grade student, select "Sunrise (K)" and "Horizon 3rd/4th").
