On Oct 27th at 7pm, we tested our emergency notification system by sending a test message to all parents and staff. So how did the test go?. Overall, the results look really good. Here’s some quick stats related to the test call.
10 minutes = amount of time it takes to make the initial contact with all families.
10,982 = total number of people that it contacts during that time.
During that time, here’s how many contacts were made:
- Over 13,000 phone calls
- 2,600 text messages
- 8,900 emails
Each fall, schools are working on their printed student directories, which are typically handled by a volunteer or parent group. Here’s the basics of what you need to know about printed student directories…
Questions that we typically hear from parents………………………….
Q1. I want my child/family information removed from the directory, how do I do that?
A1. Call your child’s school office ask to be on the “Do Not Release” list – and the school office can go into each child’s record and mark the check box for DO NOT RELEASE and your child’s name and your family information will not be released in the printed directories.
Q2. I want my child listed in the directory, but I want to edit what information is provided for our family…
