A great way to communicate with students and parents is to create a Facebook page.

How are Pages different from personal profiles?
from https://www.facebook.com/help/217671661585622

Each person who signs up for Facebook has one account with login information. Each account can have a personal profile and manage multiple Pages.
  • Personal profiles, are for individual, non-commercial use. They represent individual people and must be held under an individual name. You can follow profiles to see public updates of people you’re interested in but aren’t friends with.
  • Facebook Pages look similar to personal profiles, but they offer unique tools for connecting people to a topic they care about, like a business, brand, organization or celebrity. Pages are managed by people who have personal profiles. Pages are not separate Facebook accounts and do not have separate login information from your profile. You can like a Page to see updates in News Feed.
