Safety Cell Phone Database

Are you entered in our Safety Cell Phone Database?

  

Are you entered in our internal database of student and parent cell phone numbers?   We will program cell numbers into the School Messenger system in order to be able to send important text messages to kids and/or parents if needed. (For example, if there is a safety event at our school while students are out for lunch or right before school starts, we would like the ability to immediately send them instructions.)

CLICK HERE to enter cell phone information for the student and at least one parent or guardian. THIS APPLIES TO ALL FAMILIES GRADES 6-8, even if you submitted last year.

Nothing you submit through this link impacts your child's information elsewhere (not in the DOE's main database or on your child's blue card), and it will not be shared or used for purposes other than urgent notifications.
