We are so excited to share that, this year, Ferndale Schools will be moving to a new communication platform called “Q Communication.” This new platform will encompass all school-to-family communication. This new system will allow families to view communication from all of your students in a single dashboard. Q Communication is also embedded within MiStar, which will allow for a seamless experience for our parents. Now, with a single log-in, parents can access all district, school, and classroom announcements in one place!
