Litchfield Montessori School Launches New Website
September 12th, 2016 by Kristen Yeager
Litchfield Montessori School (LMS), a small, independent day school, has launched their new website with the help of SoSimple Interactive.
Boasting over 40 pages of information, LMS’ new website is a great resource for parents, teachers, and users interested in learning more about the school.
The website’s homepage features an interactive tree, based on the school’s logo, which leads users to the 3 branches of school levels: Young People’s Community, Children’s House, and Elementary. The homepage also features links to informational pages about the school, upcoming events, and “The Leaf,” a blog page type containing newsletter articles about the school.
LMS’ new website features SoSimple CMS’ Community Manager, allowing the client to easily maintain profile information, create permissions-based groups, and send bulk communications.
The new site also features a “Parent’s Login” page, which provides parents with important documents including the Parent Handbook, Summer Reading lists and student supply lists. This parent portal is password protected, requiring users to have a username and password before gaining access to these documents. The site also includes password protected portals for Faculty, Alumni, and the Board of Trustees.
The website features an “Events” page, which utilizes SoSimple CMS’ calendar page type. This allows users to stay up to date on school events and closings. The website also features multiple form builder pages, including a school application, parent questionnaire, and contact page. The Contact page makes use of SoSimple’s form builder page update, allowing the client to add driving directions into the form builder page without the hassle of needing a custom built page template.
For mobile users, the new website includes responsive, mobile-optimized design allowing the site to automatically reformat to ensure that content is always displayed in an optimal manner across all viewing platforms - desktop, tablet or smart phone. The new website utilizes SoSimple’s Content Management System, allowing the firm to easily manage and scale their website. With complete control, multiple site administrators can now easily manage all aspects of the website.
