How do I read my messages in Orbund?

After you log into Orbund, you may find a notification about having unread messages under “News & Announcements”. You need to read these as this is how teachers communicate with parents and students!

Messages will also be listed in the “Messages” widget on the Start Page.

To read the message, click on the “new messages” in blue text, the name of the message in the widget, or “Messages” under “Communication” in┬áthe left sidebar.

Here is an example of what the messages page will look like:

On the right, the “Status” column indicates whether you have read the message or that it is new.

To delete read messages, click the box to the left of the date of the message. A checkmark will appear. Then, in the “Move to” dropdown box, choose “Trash”. Then click “Move”. The message will instantly be moved to your trash folder (similar to an email inbox).

To move messages back into your inbox, choose “Trash” from the dropdown menu next to “Messages/Folder”.
