Parental Notifications

Last year the College Community School District contracted with SchoolMessenger, a provider of notification services for parental outreach and emergency broadcasts.

The notification system is designed to automatically notify parents for reasons that impact the safety and academic performance of students. The notification system will extend the district’s existing community outreach efforts and emergency preparedness procedures, as well as inform parents of information that will impact an entire building.

The notification system will not replace current school communication methods. Buildings will still continue to communicate via current methods including paper-based memoranda.

Again, the notification system is intended to provide timely communication regarding emergencies, safety concerns, and community outreach efforts.
