PowerSchool Contact Information
Updating Your Contact Information
It is extremely important that parent contact information is kept up to date. In addition to being able to contact you in case of an emergency, the parent contact information listed in PowerSchool is used by Blackboard (our mass communication tool) for building and district-wide communications, including phone calls, emails and text messages. No other sign up or "activation" is necessary. However, this means that it is very important to keep your information updated.
Your contact information will be used as follows:
- In non-emergency situations, you will be e-mailed at the e-mail addresses you have on record in PowerSchool.
- When school is cancelled or delayed in the morning before school starts, the system will call the primary household phone number for parents and e-mail the addresses on record in PowerSchool, excluding emergency contacts.
- In emergencies, or when school will be dismissed during the day (early) due to weather, the system will call the primary household phone number for parents/guardians and e-mail the addresses on record in PowerSchool, excluding emergency contacts.
- Certain messages may be sent to specific grade levels, as opposed to district-wide. For example, a message about cancellation of evening activities may only be sent to parents of secondary school students if no other classes or schedules are affected.
