The app will complement the other means of communication available to parents and carers from schools and the Department of Education to ensure families receive timely, accurate information in a crisis.

The app is free and available now for iOS and Android users.

You can opt in for notifications about the operational status of as many NSW public schools as you choose.

The app doesn't store any personal or identifiable information.
