Emergency Related Notifications

SchoolMessenger

SchoolMessenger is a system we use for emergency-related notifications. If you decide to sign up for the texting feature, please be advised that you will receive a phone call and a text message in emergency situations. You will also now have the ability to receive a text message for weather-related school cancellations, late openings and early releases.

Please read the following instructions carefully:

In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete. Up to two cell phones can receive text messages. Please note: If you have updated your back-to-school forms, it is not necessary to contact the main office your child(ren) attend; however, you will need to contact the school(s) if you need to update or add cell phone information.
