Open House | How to Story

Instructions 

If you're having an open house, please share the information to your parents by creating a news post on your website. The open houses page on the CBE website can link to the open house story on your school website. Contact SchoolWebSupport if you need help.

For the 2021-22 school year, open houses are virtual.

  7. Select the gear in the top right corner of your browser. Select SchoolBundle Site Govern > Create a Post
  8. Post Title: Name of School Virtual Open House | Date & Time
  9. Paste content of invitation as the story.
  10. You can add the link to the video in your open house story or you can embed it in the content portion of your open house story. Get the link or embed code from the open browser window with your YouTube video.

  17. Contact SchoolWebSupport if you do not have an image for your invitation or for your story. We recommend using an image of your school.
  18. Send your story link to SchoolWebSupport@cbe.ab.ca so we can add it to the CBE Open Houses page and link to your story.

It's also a good idea for middle/junior high and high schools to contact your feeder schools and ask if they want your open house story shared to their home page. If they do, please email SchoolWebSupport and we will share it to those schools.
