AUTOMATED SCHOOL CALLING SYSTEM
In our efforts to improve communications between parents and school, the Pikeland School District uses a telephone broadcast system that enables school personnel to notify all households and parents by phone within minutes if an emergency or unplanned event causes an early dismissal or a school cancellation. The service may also be used from time-to-time to communicate general school announcements or reminders. Pikeland Schools will continue to report school closings due to snow or weather on the local radio and television stations and will use this system as an overlay to the public announcements.
When used, the service will simultaneously call all listed phone numbers in our parent contact list and will deliver a recorded message from Mrs. Hawley, Pikeland Superintendent, or another school administrator. No answers and busy signals will be automatically retried twice in 15 minute intervals after the initial call.
If you find you are not receiving our automated messages, please contact your child's school and make sure your telephone numbers are correct on your student's enrollment information.
