Belle Vernon Area School District has partnered with SchoolMessenger to bring a new messaging service to parents and students.
The District will be sending automatic phone calls and emails to parents regarding Emergencies, Attendance, Cancellations, and Delays at school. Updates might relate to any district information or events.Be sure your contact information including primary phone number, alternate phone number and email address is current with the central office.To All Parents,
The district has signed on with SchoolMessenger, a system that provides notification services for emergency broadcasts, parental outreach and student attendance communications for K-12 Education.
The system is programmed to call the primary phone number of parents for a variety of reasons that impact the safety and academic performance of your students. SchoolMessenger will be used to complement our emergency preparedness procedures and to inform parents of upcoming school events such as statewide testing and parent meetings.
After evaluating several notification solutions we selected SchoolMessenger because it offers a real value to the district and is proven to measurably impact student safety, parental involvement, staff communications and student attendance.
Look and listen for more information from your child’s school on this exciting new tool for improving communication.
This system will not replace current modes of school communication. Principals are still accessible for live visits and we will still send home paper-based memoranda for the time being. The SchoolMessenger system is intended to reinforce the district’s commitment to remain personally connected to parents.
