Below is an open letter from our CEO to all schools in the Lake Washington School District, distributed during today’s demonstration in Kirkland, WA.

To: All LWSD Schools & Teachers
We at Bloomz believe that Education is the most important investment a country can make, for its people and its future alike. As a Redmond-based startup that offers individual teachers a free app to save time and improve parental engagement in benefit of their students, we too believe we need to stand with our community in times of need.
Because of the current budget situation, we have decided to waive all school fees derived from our communication app and service for all LWSD during next school cycle, in hope this will relieve some of the financial burden they carry in their communications with parents. By offering our app and service at no cost, we believe schools in the district will be able to save money currently spent in parent communication (paper, fliers, time).
We understand budget constraints are difficult to deal with, and our app will continue to be free for both teachers and parents. With today’s announcement, we hope our contribution can make a small difference for schools as well.
