Marysville schools add alert notification system

MARYSVILLE — The Marysville School District has signed on with SchoolMessenger, a company that provides notification services for parental outreach, emergency broadcasts and student attendance communications for K-12 education.

Marysville parents can now receive phone calls, text alerts and e-mails about a range of issues affecting their students' safety and academic performance.

SchoolMessenger will be used to complement the district's existing emergency preparedness procedures, and to inform parents of upcoming school events such as statewide testing and parent meetings. The alert service from SchoolMessenger is designed to impact student safety, parental involvement, staff communications and student attendance. Marysville parents should expect to receive notifications from the system soon.

This system will not replace current modes of school communication. Marysville school principals are still accessible for live visits and the district will still send home paper-based memoranda. Acquisition of the SchoolMessenger system is intended to reinforce the district's commitment to remaining personally connected to parents.
