Emergency and non-emergency announcements

However, it is not necessary to load the app to receive our announcements through regular telephone, SMS and email. ParentSquare is linked to the contact information you provide via online registration through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account.
In case of emergency, the district will use the automated notification system to rapidly alert parents and guardians and to relay critical information, followed by appropriate, verifiable informational updates.
Other emergency communications resources we will use include AlertRivCo

- In a non-emergency situation, if you have questions, please contact your child's school office.
- During an emergency, please monitor your home phone or mobile device for district alerts, breaking news, and updates, which we will provide as soon as verifiable information is available.
- In an actual emergency, school phone lines will be needed for emergency communication with first responders. Incoming switchboard lines may be busy due to call volume. Try to keep phone lines clear so instructions we broadcast will have a greater chance of reaching you in an emergency.
We will make every effort to communicate the status of events and emergencies to parents and the community in a timely manner.
