Dublin City Schools has the ability to call thousands of parents in a short amount of time.
The “PreK-12 Notification” system complements other district communications systems. It will not replace TV stations, the district’s web site, or the district’s mass email system. We will continue to utilize ALL of these mediums in the event of a school closure and/or delay.
At this time, the use of the system will largely be limited to emergency notifications and weather-related notifications. In the future, the system may be used for other forms of communications, but it is imperative the system not be over-used.
The system is voice activated and the recording will start when a phone is answered OR when the call is dropped into voice mail.
If neither of these takes place, the system will continue to try to reach a voice for a short period of time and you may receive multiple calls in these cases.
If you have caller ID, the incoming number you will see is 764-5913. Parents will have the opportunity to control their contact information with this system and will have the options of voice, email, and text message notifications.
Parents and may call 1-800-846-4976 to add additional contact information or opt out of receiving the phone calls. The call must be made from the primary contact number the district has on file in order to manage the information.
Any changes to primary phone numbers must take place at the building level.
Once the call is made from the correct primary number, parents can create a pin number to log in to www.prek12notification.com
, where up to four email addresses and four phone numbers may be added to a user’s profile. During emergency calls, all numbers and email addresses in a user’s profile will be contacted.
