New Emergency Communications System 427
New Emergency Communications System

The Board will be testing a new e​mergency communications system on Tuesday, November 19

We are introducing a new communications system that will send text messages to parents/guardians for emergency purposes only, such as the rare event of a school closure. 

If the school has your cell phone number (documented as your cell and not your home phone number), you will receive a test text message. This message will also include information about how to opt out of this system. 

If you do not receive a text and wish to participate in the program, please ensure that your school has your cell phone number. 

Seve​re Weather

As we go into the winter months, it is important that families are aware that there may be rare occasions when emergency weather events occur and we need to close all schools and Board locations. 

Please take the time to make plans in the event of an emergency school closure, and to learn more about school transportation cancellations and potential school closures during severe weather.  

Transportation cancellations or school closures will also continue to be communicated through:
