Emergency Procedures

Skylert Procedures

Purpose: This procedure establishes the criteria for which automated mass calls, text messages and emails are made to parents and the community.


General – An automated email, text message and call that is sent to parents’ and staffs’ primary contact information. It will be sent to the primary email address and primary phone number as identified in Skyward.

Emergency – An automated email, text message and call that is sent to all contact information on file for parents and staff. The automated message will be sent to the primary, secondary, tertiary, and all other email addresses and phone numbers identified in Skyward.

Unplanned – A deviation from a previously published schedule. For example, if school is normally scheduled to run as a full day, but is dismissed early due to the anticipation that a weather event will make travel unsafe.
