School Announcement today released the latest version of their alert system designed to help Administrators communicate with student families quickly and effectively. School Announcement is a web-based service that facilitates the sending of messages via phone (voice), SMS text message and email.
Included in the latest release of School Announcement is the exclusive new Parent Portal – a first in the marketplace. The Parent Portal affords schools the opportunity to empower parents to not only update and edit their contact information, but add additional contact information. Furthermore, the online portal allows parents to choose which numbers are contacted in any given situation. For example, a parent may want multiple numbers contacted in the event of an emergency, but only want the home number called for general notifications. Similarly a parent may want attendance calls to go to both parent’s cell phones, rather than their home.
