VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Today, there's an app for almost everything...and now, that includes Valdosta City Schools. The school system's app is now officially available for download.

The Valdosta City School System is rolling out a Valdosta City Schools app to help parents and students better connect with the school system and visa versa.

"We have a transient population, where most of our kids and their parents are often moving around," said Jennifer Steedley, Valdosta City Schools Director of Public Relations.

"If we don't have the updated info about our families and we have some information that we need to get to our families quickly, if they have this app we can get it to them even if we don't have current information about them," Steedley continued.

The app allows users to contact teachers and district officials, to connect to their school's social media accounts, and much more.

"It also connects to our student information system, where they can check their children's assignments look at their grades, check up on absences, things like that," Steedley explained.

Steedley said as a parent herself, she's already used the app and found it helpful.

"Just this morning, my son asked what's for lunch. So, we tried to go where we could quickly gain access to the lunch menu. I was in the bathroom getting ready, so I pulled up the iPad, looked right there, there was the lunch menu," said Steedley.

So, if you've ever needed information from or about Valdosta City Schools...now there's an app for that.

You can download the app for free by searching for Valdosta City Schools in Google Play or the Apple Store.
