As you have probably experienced by now, the Alert Now (formerly Connect Ed) system is up and running. We will continue to use this system to alert you to important events, absences, and emergencies. One of the nicer features for us is the feedback we receive. At the first test, we received a list of phone numbers that were disconnected or incorrect. As of the last message, we only had three (about 1%). This system will help us ensure we have contacts for all our children.
We also know if we were heard by a machine, a live person, and if the message was fully listened to. Please listen to the entire message – many of you who hung up neglected to hear that the dismissal was 11:15, not noon.
Thank you to all of you who helped get this system in place!
