New School Alert System
WPMS recently started a new way to alert our families of changes to the school’s schedule. The goal of implementing this new system is to get information out to our families in a timely manner, especially when it pertains to a delay or cancellation.
Throughout the year, we will be sending out email, voice and SMS text messaging notifications using School Announcement for school closings, event reminders, class updates, schedule changes, meeting notifications and more.
Currently, all email, voice and text notifications will be sent to our families based on the contact information we have on file. In addition to our School Portal, we have also invested in providing families with an easy way to manage individual notifications and contact information.
This web-based portal is called the Parent Portal. The Parent Portal allows families to update contact information, organize notification lists, add phone numbers and even email addresses.
School Announcement’s Parent Portal enables our families not only update contact information, but choose which phone numbers and email addresses where they would like to be notified.
For more information about our school’s alert system contact, Carol Miskell, Head of School via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 412-487-2700.
