Mott/Regent school has implemented a new service that parents and fans of the Wildfire can utilize.

R School is an interactive schedule management system that can alert you to practice and game times, and send you notifications of rescheduling or cancellations.

Schools around this area have been using this system the past few seasons, but this is the first year that Mott/Regent is offering this service.

So how do you sign up?

Log on to the Mott/Regent school website. On the left side there are a list of different links that will take you to which ever part of the website you wish to visit. If you click the link titled ‘School Activity Scheduler’ it will take you right to the ‘R School’ program.

When you first get on to the page, schedules for the upcoming week are on display. Game times, opponents and locations are all right there viewing.

On the top users can also navigate to rosters, scores and standings, and coaches. Below that and to the right a little users can select how they want to view the calendar. Users can select to see the month, week or even daily activities.

The site also allows for view of specific events not just sports but meetings, concerts or other various activities that the school has scheduled.

Need help finding the location of away games? R School can help with that.

Listed along with the game time, the opponent name is also a link. By clicking on that link another window opens up with the game time, opponent, address of the location and a map of where the building can be located.

The interactive portion of the website is there to alert users of changes in scheduling.

In the upper right hand corner there is a link labeled ‘Notify Me!’ that can be clicked to set up notifications of an event, or multiple events.

For instance, if a user wants to be notified prior to each girls basketball game, they can. It also allows the user to select how far in advanced you’d like to be notified. Notifications are delivered to email addresses and phones via a text message, users just need to type in their phone number and select their cell phone carrier.

Those who have lived in the area are familiar with how the weather can affect school events. If a game, or event is cancelled and the user has signed up for notifications on that particular activity, you will be alerted to the cancellation.

The site also affords users the luxury of seeing the whole schedule of the sport, including games that have already been played along with the final scores.

Mott/Regent girls basketball Head Coach and school Principal Adam Hill wanted to encourage people to take advantage of the system and the features it offers.
