HOW TO LAUNCH HOMERUN
Follow these simple steps below to launch the HomeRun App at your school
Make sure you have the following:
Parents Activation Link (PDF)
HomeRun will send you a PDF containing a unique sign-up Link for your school only. This link will allow Parents at your school to create their HomeRun accounts.
Staff Activation Link (PDF)
HomeRun will send you a separate PDF containing a unique Staff Verification Code. This code is needed by staff members to create staff accounts on HomeRun.
4 STEPS TO LAUNCH
1/ INTRODUCE HOMERUN TO PARENTS & STAFF
To launch HomeRun at your school, first send an introduction email and digital HomeRun information leaflet to all Parents and Staff. We have a suggested email template <download here> ready for you.
Attach & send our HomeRun leaflet <download here> with your email.
Encourage all Parents & Staff at your school to sign up to the service.
2/ PARENTS AND STAFF HOMERUN LAUNCH EMAIL
WITH ACTIVATION LINKS
Send Parents & Staff the Launch email separately
With the Parents email, attach & send the Parents Activation Link PDF
With the Staff email, attach & send the Staff Activation Link PDF which also includes your Staff Verification Code.
3/ FOLLOW UP EMAIL
After 1 week send Parents and Staff a Follow Up Email, with the relevant activation links attached, as a reminder to ensure everyone has signed up.
4/ PROMOTE SIGN UPS
Send regular reminders (weekly, reducing to bi-weekly) until a good sign up rate is achieved.
We recommend that School Faculty use their HomeRun feed to post relevant information about their school's travel initiatives. This will greatly increase parental engagement on the platform.
