The South San Francisco Unified School District will be conducting a test of our emergency messaging system during the months of April and May as follows:
April 18, 2016 (3:15pm) School/District Staff only
May 2, 2016 (5:30pm) All District Community, includes parents and staff
As the safety of our students and staff continues to be our top priority, we will be initiating a new test protocol of our emergency messaging system. As part of any immediate action response to an emergency or crisis scenario, we understand the importance of clear and prompt communication with our students, parents, staff, and community. This system test will allow us to continue to improve our ability to utilize phone messages, email blasts, and text messages to deliver important information district-wide.
Since our emergency messaging system is based upon contact information recorded in our student information database, it is important that we have accurate and updated information to ensure that messages can be delivered. Should you wish to add new contact information, or verify existing information, such as phone numbers and email addresses, please contact/visit your local school site office.
Cell phone users who have a number on file with the district/school sites, may receive an SMS text message asking you to “opt in” to continue receiving messages by text. Please be sure to follow the instructions to opt in, as this is an important service utilized by our emergency messaging system.
If you do not receive the test message as scheduled, please contact your local school site to verify the contact information on file.
Our new test protocol will subsequently be conducted at least annually to ensure the proper functioning of our system.
