New Communication Tools for Parents

Communicate: Tools for Parents
Posted on 11/15/2018

Our school will use a new broadcasting tool to communicate need-to-know information to families in a timely and efficient way. The “Communicate” system will allow us to share important school information with you via text, email or phone message.
Parents/guardians may choose how to receive these alerts by text message, email or phone call with the exception of emergency events which will always be communicated via all contact methods on file with the school. If parents/guardians choose to receive text messages, they must opt-in due to potential charges from their cell phone carrier.

Our school will use this new and improved version of the Syrnevoice broadcasting tool to communicate need-to-know information to families. The “Communicate” system will allow us to share important school information with you via text, email or phone message. We will use this tool for urgent items like event cancellations or school emergencies, and we will continue to use it for attendance. We may also use it for sharing information such as upcoming progress reports, school council meetings or special events. Learn more on our website.

Registered parents/guardians will receive these messages through contact information collected in our student information system. 

It is important that parents/guardians ensure schools have the most up-to-date contact information. If your contact information changes during the school year, parents/guardians are asked to contact the school with the updated information.

Communicate does not replace current school communication tools but enhances the way in which schools will provide information to families. In most cases, information will still be provided on school websites, Twitter and notices home. 

Parents/guardians should expect to receive notifications from the system soon via text message.  you will be asked to respond with Y.
