Seward Public Schools has contracted with a company to provide emergency notifications and reminders to parents, students, and patrons. The company we are working with is able to pull contact information for PARENTS from PowerSchool, our student management software. As a result, parents should automatically be set up to receive emails, text messages, and voice messages on their home phone, provided we have your contact information in PowerSchool. If you are a PARENT/GUARDIAN and you do not receive this message but wish to in the future, please contact Craig Williams - email@example.com and provide him the name(s) of your child(ren) along with the contact information you would like to include (please no work numbers unless you are self-employed). You can receive the messages by voice message, text message, or email.
STUDENTS and OTHERS (not parents): If you wish to receive emergency and/or reminder text messages on your cell phones you need to “Opt In” to the system. Contact Craig Williams - firstname.lastname@example.org to get signed up. Please include the cell number on which you wish to receive these messages, along with the school you are connected to.
The information entered in PowerSchool for parents/guardians will stay in the system as long as you have children in our school.
