South Putnam Community Schools has signed on with School Messenger, a company 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, the guardian cell phone number, guardian email, and the alert numbers that you entered on your child’s demographic page when you registered them for school. You can login to your child’s Harmony account at any time and add or make changes to these fields. School Messenger will be used for a variety of reasons that impact the safety and academic performance of your students. School Messenger will be used to complement our emergency preparedness procedures and to inform parents of school closings or delays.
Starting this evening you will start receiving “opt-in” text. If you have an SMS text phone number on file with us you will receive a text this evening asking you to “opt-in” if you would like to receive text. If you would like to receive any notifications that South Putnam Community Schools sends out through School Messenger, please reply to the text message with either a Y or a Yes.
In the days ahead, I will be sending out another email with instructions on how you will have the ability to login to School Messenger and custom pick what messages you would like to go to each of the allowed numbers that we have on file.
Parents: If you have questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact your student's school. Addresses and contact information are listed under each respective school website under the Buildings menu.
