Riverside Local School District uses a school-to-family communication service called PreK-12 Notification. We will use this service to deliver both emergency and non-emergency messages to you via the home telephone number that is in the Riverside student database during the school year. It is important to notify the school office if your home phone number changes during the school year. Using PreK-12 Notification, we can quickly contact all families – in a matter of minutes – with urgent news such as school closings, early dismissals, delayed buses or rescheduled activities. We will also use the service to provide timely non-emergency information such as reminders about important meetings or special events at school that involve your children. In the case of school closings, this service is meant to be a compliment to the existing means of communications, TV stations, radio stations, etc. We will continue to utilize ALL of these mediums in the event of a school closure and/or delay so you don’t have to wait to get your call for the closing to be official.
The message will be in a voice you will recognize and will be left on your answering machine or in your voice mail if you are not available when we call. You can play the message again if you did not hear it the first time.
Additional telephone numbers CAN be added to the call list. To add a number to the phone call notification system please contact the front office via phone at 937-585-5981 or you can contact the technology department via email at firstname.lastname@example.org please be sure to include the phone number you wish to have added or removed in your email.
