Fire Registers

In the event of a fire alarm (real or practice), or another emergency, the Fire_Register.png Fire Registers feature lets staff take registers accurately and as quickly as possible. As opposed to a normal register, Fire Registers present staff with one student at a time, along with their image (where available in the MIS). This feature uses live attendance data to alert staff if any students are missing.

Table of Contents

Locate a Register

1) Tap on Fire_Register.png Fire from your Dashboard (Homepage).

2) If you are linked to classes, tap on a class from the list shown under Take a Register for.

3) If you are not linked to classes, or you need to take a Fire Register for another teacher’s class, tap Other Staff Classes.

a. Search for the teacher for whom you wish to take the Register for and tap on their name.
b. Select a class from the list shown under that teacher’s name to open its Register.

Take a Register

1) Students in the chosen register will be displayed one at a time. On each page, you will see the following information:
a. The student’s Name and Registration Group.
b. If they should be present (marked as such earlier in the day), you will see an In.png icon next to the Present mark for that student. Similarly, if the student should be absent, you will see an Out.png icon for them.
c. Further down, the student’s Attendance for all other periods in so far in the day will be displayed.
