Keeping you informed is a top priority at the School District of Amery. That’s why we have adopted the Blackboard Connect Notification Service which will allow us to send a telephone or e-mail message to you providing important information about school events or emergencies. We anticipate using Blackboard Connect to notify you of school delays or cancellations due to inclement weather, as well as remind you about various events, including report card distribution, open house, field trips, and more. In the event of an emergency at school, you can have peace of mind knowing that you will be informed immediately by phone.
What you need to know about receiving calls sent through Blackboard Connect
· Caller ID will display the school’s main number when a general announcement is delivered.
· Blackboard Connect can leave a message on an answering machine or voicemail.
· If the AlertNow message stops playing, press 1 and the message will replay from the beginning.
The successful delivery of information is dependent upon accurate contact information for each student, so please make certain that we have your most current phone numbers. If this information changes during the year, please let us know immediately.
We are very excited to incorporate Blackboard Connect as a tool to improve parent communication and look forward to having the ability to deliver real-time information to you and provide awareness of all the great events that take place within the school.
Notifications are also available on Media Sources
In addition to sending alert notifications to students and staff, the School District of Amery
continues to make alerts available to the Amery community through area media,
including television channels 4 (WCCO), 5 (KSTP), 9 (KMSP) and 11 (KARE) and
radio stations WCCO (AM 830) and WXCE (AM 1260).
