News :: Vinton-Shellsburg CSD changing contact system
· 12:24am November 23rd, 2012
The Vinton-Shellsburg CSD has decided to discontinue the School Alerts notification system do to the adoption of a new system, School Messenger and the unreliability of the old School Alerts system.
Notifications are sent out in multiple ways to make sure everyone is contacted. Some only have a home phone, some only have a cell phone. The School Messenger system can't determine which is which, so all numbers in the PowerSchool data feed are contacted. The district will only use the email feature for early outs in the future. They've already had many requests on how to change where these notifications end up. See below for information on how to get the information the way you want it.
NO MORE CALLS!: This has been the most common concern people have had. If you don't want phone calls to your home or cell phones please send those numbers in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be added to the "block call list." You will still receive text messages IF you have signed up for the School Messenger texting service (as instructed above).
