Emergency Notification Process

During emergencies, we send information to parents and guardians mainly via Parent Square and Flash Alert.

  1. Parents and guardians receive email, phone, or text messages using Parent Square. These messages come in the family’s home language. Family contact information is received during registration each year.

  • Parents and guardians, downloading the ParentSquare app for your personal device helps with notifications as well.

  • It is important that parents and guardians regularly update their contact information with your student’s school, or notices might not be received in a timely way.
