Classlist offers a unique platform for contacting other parents, both as named individuals and as part of a generic group (posting). In the Messaging feature, parents can set up a chat directly with one or more named parents so that other parents outside the discussion don't get bothered by messages they are not interested in.
Parents can message other parents by name on Classlist. You can also send a message to several parents allowing them all to reply. You can even create multiple conversations with the same set of people allowing different conversation topics (so you don't lose all the important school messages in with the general chit-chat).
Parents are invited to add their contact details to the service, this helps build an ever-growing Classlist of contact details, allowing parents to contact each other if they need to. Only parents from the school can see these details, as each school acts as an independent group, meaning your details stay private and secure, shared only with those you trust.
Parents can also opt into the parent map, which is perfect for arranging lift-shares or finding that obscure house when dropping the kids off at a birthday party.
