Blackboard Mass Notifications (BbMN) Teacher Communications
To log into BbMN, go to springisd.parentlink.net and use your district username and password. Once logged in, you can send email and/or text/SMS messages to parents of the students for classes in which you are the teacher of record. While you have the option to contact students directly, you should address messages to parents as parent accounts have their own email addresses and text/SMS phone numbers.
Parents must have their contact information updated in eSchool which updates BbMN nightly.
Here are some helpful resources to help you use the BbMN Teacher Comms tool to communicate directly with parents.
