Stay Connected to PS/MS 164 and get the Edlio app for our School's Website

Dear families,
We have started to use the School News app by Edlio, an activity feed for consuming alerts, news, and events for participating schools. It’s a simple way to view the school’s news feeds and calendars, and also receive push notifications directly from us.
It’s free to download to your iOS or Android phone and quick to set up:
Go to the App Store or Google Play and search for “School News by Edlio” to install.
Open the app and search for the school by typing 164; find PS/MS 164 and tap “Add School.” If you have kids in other Edlio-powered schools, add them to the app too.
Enable push notification by going to the Alerts tab and tapping “Enable Notifications.”
All of the news and events posted to our website are posted here for easy access. You can also add multiple Edlio-powered schools and/or districts to gather all news, events, and alerts in this one app. We’ll send push notifications out to keep you updated on urgent news.
The Team at PS/MS 164
