Information Regarding Telephone Notification System
March 23, 2016
As many of you are aware, we have experienced some issues this year with the telephone notification system missing a few calls. However, this morning, we received multiple reports of missed calls. I have been in contact with both the company that operates the service, and our local telephone company. They are both working to determine the cause of the missed calls. Please know that we are aware of the situation, and doing everything we can to resolve it. If for some reason, the system cannot be adjusted to work in our area, we may need to return to use of the Code Red system, or use an alternate means of communicating late starts and school dismissals.
In the meantime, I would ask for your assistance for future calls. If there is a late start or school cancellation, and you do not receive a call, please notify the school as soon as possible. This gives the companies the best opportunity to trace where the calls are getting dropped.
