Dear Stanwood Parent/Guardian:


We are happy to share that the issues regarding the Sangha mass communication tool have been addressed and we are now ready to implement this tool, with Stanwood Elementary serving as the pilot school.  Once used by Stanwood Elementary for a period of time, we will begin to use this tool for all Hempfield Area Schools near the start of the second semester.  This tool will provide a consistent means for teachers to communicate with parents and guardians, regardless of school and/or grade.  


Teachers will utilize Sangha to communicate homework and/or classroom announcements on a weekly basis.  Once registered, you will receive notification by a text, email, or voice when your child’s teacher makes an entry.


Sangha provides access via an App and/or website If you have already received notification and downloaded the Sangha App, no further action is required. If you did not yet receive an invite, the system is set to automatically send an invite on November 27th around 7:00 pm. Should you still not receive an invite the evening of November 27th, please contact your building secretary to verify your contact information in Skyward.


Parent communication is important in promoting home and school relationships. We appreciate your understanding and support as we implement this new communication tool.




Mr. John Behrendt
