Send a custom text to one or more families

LENA's texting feature lets users create and send custom text messages to some or all families in a group. Examples might include:

  • links to videos to view before the next session
  • weather-related last minute session changes
  • a relevant community resource or event
  • a reminder about something you've asked them to prepare

Follow these steps to create and send texts.
