Emergency notification system for King
George County Schools parents and friends
King George County Schools has relied on several methods of communicating with
parents and friends about emergency notifications over the past few years.
The division is consolidating all its notifications to one system beginning May
King George County Schools has
contracted with SchoolMessenger, a leading provider of notification services for
parental outreach, emergency broadcasts, student attendance alerts and other
communications for education.
The SchoolMessenger system is designed to automatically
notify parents for reasons that impact the safety and academic performance of
students. SchoolMessenger will extend the district’s existing community outreach
efforts and emergency preparedness procedures, as well as inform parents of
upcoming school events such as statewide testing and parent meetings. As a
comprehensive communication tool, SchoolMessenger will contribute to the
district’s involvement initiatives, allowing the district to engage the broader
educational community about a wide range of topics affecting students’ academic
SchoolMessenger will replace all current school communication
methods used in the past. Schoolsout.com, KGALERT will no longer be used to
disseminate information concerning the school division after July 1, 2012.
Principals will still be accessible for live visits and will continue to
communicate via current methods including paper-based memoranda. The district’s
acquisition of the SchoolMessenger system is intended to extend its commitment
to remain personally connected with parents by offering additional and timely
communications. SchoolMessenger notification services are provided by Reliance
Communications of Santa Cruz, California, serving thousands of schools,
districts, colleges and universities with timely alerts since 1999.
