Frequently Asked Questions

General:

How do I sign my child in/out?

NOW staff will sign children in and out using the BrightWheel app. Parents and guardians will come into the building to unpack their belongings and wash hands before their children start their school day. After drop-off, staff members will sign children in through BrightWheel. After families pick their children up, staff will also sign children out through BrightWheel.

What is BrightWheel?

BrightWheel is an app that NOW uses for attendance and sending messages and updates to parents and guardians. We recommend that at least one parent or guardian from each family sign up for BrightWheel.
