School Messenger System

The District is working on a new service in an effort to better communicate weather related announcements and other reminders with parents, staff and students.  We are trying out a subscription to School Messenger.  It is an online service where announcements can be sent to an email account or a phone as a voice message or text message.  At the time I am writing this, you may have even received some test messages.  I am hopeful that this new system will better serve the needs of the district when communicating important information to the public.  We are still planning to contact the local media about late starts, early dismissals and cancellations as in the past, but this system should get you the message much sooner than when it would be posted on a website or on the television stations.
