Emergency Calling System
Emergency Calling System

One Call Now is the emergency calling system used by our schools to contact parents for various activities and reminders.

Superintendent Rodney Green uses the system to notify parents and contacts in the event of weather emergencies, school closings or delayed school opening.

 

Parents and Students

The information for this calling system pulls from the student management system at your student’s school. That information is edited each year using the corrections parents provide on the school registration form.

If your contact numbers change, it is necessary for you to provide updated information to your student’s school office. Phone calls are not acceptable. There must be verifiable documentation of any change to your student’s record in order to maintain the confidentiality and security of the data.

If your phone number, address, or emergency contact information changes after you have completed the registration form at the beginning of the school year, please contact your student’s school for the correct procedure to update the information and provide documentation needed.
