Kathie Phillips replied to Matt Norman's discussion Room vs Central sign in?
"Currently, kids are signed in at their classrooms.  Yes, there is traffic but I've found that's not necessarily a bad thing.  Some of the best conversations happen there between me and the parents and the parents to each other.…"
