The “Notifications” icon is where you will see recent messages that have been sent through the app. When new messages go out, your phone will notify you with a sound and a popup on your screen, even when the app is closed.
On the second page of icons (swipe right to left), there is a “Settings” icon where you can add or change the schools that you “follow”. This is also where you will add schools to follow if you skipped the setup in step 2 above.
