It's that time of year again. Children are groaning (even as their parents quietly sigh in relief) because summer has come to an end and they're back in school again.
Anyone who's involved in the school system – as a teacher, administrator, or parent – knows that communication is one of the single most vital aspects of a school. Parents want to know what their children are doing and what events are coming up, and school staff want to make sure this information is available in as many forms as possible.
LED school signs are a great way to provide this information! Because of their versatile, multi-function nature, they can provide any information you need to convey to students, teachers, and staff, plus they do it in an eye-catching manner that's sure to impress.
Here are just a few ways LED school signs can enrich the learning environment while informing all who pass by.
Announce holidays, closures and delays: It might be the most obvious use, but it's also one of the most important ones. Large outdoor monochrome LED signs can be updated any time, day or night, to provide vital closure information just as soon as you know it.
Run a calendar of upcoming events: If you have no major announcements to put on your sign, use it to announce any upcoming special events such as Book Sales, parent-teacher conference week, team competitions, or entertainment programs.
Post scores and videos of recent competitions: Whether your school's specialty is football, track, or mock trial, a full-color outdoor LED school sign is the perfect way to show off your latest achievements. Don't just post the scores; include recaps and highlights that reach out to any passers-by.
Pro-quality scoreboards: If you want to give your team that psychological edge – while potentially attracting better local sponsors at the same time – update your scoreboard to a full digital model that allows for easy updates as well as animated highlights.
Smaller signs direct traffic: Don't forget the basics of getting people in and out of your parking lot during busy times of the day. There are a wide range of transportation-related LED signs which you can use to control traffic and ensure parents get to where they need to be rather than getting lost in a traffic jam. Routing signs can be re-routed in a jiffy, and variable-speed limit signs help keep little ones safe.
Let media design students gain experience: When you get some LED school signs, don't be greedy. Open them up for your advanced students in art and media design to use. The yearbook team could put together photo montages, and the media crew could cut together sport highlight reels. It's a perfect way of giving them real-world hands-on experience with modern technology.
No matter what you need them for, LED school signs are a great all-around option for a school district looking to communicate better and enrich its students' educations. Contact Adaptive Display Solutions for more information about how an LED sign is beneficial for your school.
