Our school utilizes the Honeywell Instant Alert System to provide families with important school information, school closures, and emergency notification.
Instant Alert by Honeywell
Keeping parents informed and involved helps to assure student safety and improve student success. With today’s “on-the-go” lifestyles, it has become more difficult for schools to reach families quickly and effectively. This is why our school has decided to implement a Parent Notification System.
Instant Alert for Schools is a tool for notification and communication within minutes of an emergency; school officials can use Instant Alert to deliver a single, clear message to all parents or guardians by telephone, cell phone, e-mail, or PDA, in any combination, and it will keep you informed of school closings and emergencies.
Instant Alert is Internet based, allowing each family to maintain a secure, password-protected, online profile. Below are instructions for accessing the Instant Alert System and creating your profile. Maintaining the accuracy of your profile will increase the ability of the school to keep you informed. Your online profile will enable you to:
Input your personal contact information
Select which type of school information you would like to receive
Set the days, and time of day, you would like your phone devices to receive alerts
View the alerts that have been sent you in the past

Or, if you did not want your cell phone to receive alerts while you were sleeping, you could set the weekday start time to 6:00am and the weekday end time to 10:00pm and the weekend start time to 8:00am and the weekend end time to 11:00pm. You have the flexibility and control to set up your phones in many different ways.
