Plan that will be deployed should an emergency present itself in our school district. This plan was created to protect the safety of our students, staff, parents and community, and an important component of this plan involves timely and efficient notification to parents and guardians in the event of an emergency.
Mariemont City Schools uses a notification program called SchoolMessenger, however it is important to note that SchoolMessenger will only be used in the case of an emergency. We also will continue to post information on our website and utilize standard media outlets and/or social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, should we deem it necessary.
The SchoolMessenger program utilizes phone, email and/or text to send notifications instantaneously, thus increasing the likelihood that our parents and staff receive crucial information in a timely manner. We know that in a time of crisis, communication is key.
To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, you should have already opted in, or out, of the verification text from 675-87.
We plan to send a test message out on Thursday, September 1, at 9:00 a.m. The message will read:
“This is from the Mariemont City School District and is a TEST notification message. No action is required."
If you receive the message, you are in the system and will receive text messages if/when they are sent in emergency situations. If you do not receive the text message and wish to, feel free to contact Lance Hollander, Director of Human Resources and District Operations, at 513-272-7500.
If you prefer not to receive emergency notifications via text, visit http://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg or reply with STOP to 675-87. Please note: the school district does not pay for text message charges that you may incur for sending or receiving text messages. Please check with your wireless carrier for more specific information regarding your services.
During the summer, all parents and guardians should have input their current contact information when creating or updating their FinalForms account; therefore, we should have your current contact phone number(s) and email addresses in our system. If you have any reason to believe that your information is not up to date, please contact your child’s school building.
