The Solon Community School District will once again be utilizing a parent notification system during the 2011-12 school year. We will be utilizing a new vendor, School Messenger Notification System, to notify parents and staff members information for weather-related school and activity dismissals, late starts or cancellations by phone, email and at a later date optionally via text message. The district’s primary method to report school closings and delays is local television and radio station announcements. The School Messenger Notification System will be a secondary public announcement. Parents and guardians do not have to do anything to receive communications through this new system as we are pulling information from our parent-student information system, PowerSchool. All SCSD parents/guardians will receive a test phone call and email on or around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 23. If parents/guardians need to change contact information before or after Aug. 24, please use the e-registration process or contact the appropriate building office so that we may update our records. Questions about the notification system should be directed to Matt Townsley, Director of Instruction & Technology at firstname.lastname@example.org  or call 319-624-3401 ext. 1352.
