SchoolMessenger™ is an alert notification system that offers rapid notification to parents and guardians through voice messaging and e-mail. This service enables parents/guardians to receive information within minutes about early dismissals, school emergencies, and pertinent/time-sensitive communications by the principal and superintendent. In the event of an early dismissal or emergency closing, a message will be broadcast through SchoolMessenger and also appear on the district website. Closing information is reported to the major television media outlets, including: WFSB Channel 3, WTNH Channel 8, WVIT Channel 30 and WTIC FOX 61 News. Please do not call the radio station, police department, or Board of Education Office for school closing information.

Students should have a plan for getting into their home when school closes early. In the rare event of emergency while school is in session (i.e., power failure, weather emergency, etc.), a protocol has been established in each school which will ensure the safety of all students and staff. In addition, emergency plans are in place with the SW Police and Fire Departments. Because an emergency could involve the local police and fire departments, it is critical that the streets and parking lots surrounding the school be kept completely clear. Parents are not to come to the school to pick up their child(ren) unless directed to do so by SchoolMessenger, media emergency closing contacts or a school administrator.
