Beach Slack Workspace

Please contact your room parent for an invite the Beach Slack Workspace.

Our Slack Channels are a way to communicate with the parents within your children’s class, within the grade, and within the school. Your Room Parents are tagged in the class channel and will send communication to you through this class channel. In addition to the class and grade channels we have added additional channels that will support parents and students- we hope you will join the ones that interest you! If you have other ideas for channels – please reach out to us and we can discuss. We look forward to hearing your ideas!

We encourage you to set up your profile (if this is your first foray into Slack) so that your child’s name and teacher are listed. This will enable other parents to see so they know which parent to connect with.

Once you have connected with Slack you should select:

  • Browse Slack
  • Channel Browser
  • Search for Channels

You can select the grade for your child(ren), click “JOIN”, and then you will be added to your respective classes manually by the Beach Slack admins. This may take a little time- so please have patience!
