Parent Broadcast System

One Call Now continues to be our emergency broadcast notification system. This Web-based system will help streamline communications with our emergency notification protocols for students, parents and staff.  Additionally, we will continue to contact media sources to announce school closings for weather emergencies.

New this year, we are planning to send messages using voice, e-mail and text to alert our parents and staff during inclement weather. 

You can sign-up for text messaging from One Call Now by texting the word “alert” to 22300, as long as your cell phone number is already in the One Call Now database.  To add your cell phone number or to check the status of your phone numbers and e-mail addresses, please go to the Self Update Portal and sign up or log in to access your information. 


One Call Now has a SELF UPDATE PORTAL for you to view and update your contact information.

Go to and click the “Sign Up” button.  The system will walk you through creating and editing your profile. When creating or editing your contact information, be aware of the “Main Contact” box.  If a low-priority message about an upcoming event goes out, it will only go to your “Main Contact” number.  High priority messages go to all numbers. You can change your “Main Contact” number to the phone where you want to receive the low priority messages.

If you have any questions about the Self Update Portal or My Call Now, please email Jim Soyars at
