Keeping parents informed and involved helps to assure student safety and improve student success. With today's on-the-go lifestyles, it has become increasingly difficult for schools to reach families quickly and effectively. This is why Annville-Cleona School District utilizes multiple tools to communicate building and district emergencies, delays, and cancellations. The most up-to-date information can be found on our website; however, the following tools may also be utilized:
AC E-NewsAll students, staff, and parents can manage their subscriptions to different content that is posted to the website.AC E-news messages may be sent to communicate teacher to student related news. You may subscribe, edit your subscriptions, or unsubscribe at any time by signing into the website, then clicking on "My Account" then "Edit Account Settings" then click "Subscriptions".
SchoolMessengerSchoolMessenger is an essential tool for notification and communication. Within minutes of an emergency, school officials can use SchoolMessenger to deliver a single, clear message to parents or guardians by telephone, email, and/or SMS text message. SchoolMessenger can also be used to notify you of school closings or delays due to inclement weather. Information will continue to be communicated through our district web page, AC E-News, and local radio/television stations.Parents can modify the types of calls, emails, and text message their student’s contacts receive from our SchoolMessenger. If parents do not personalize the types of calls, emails, and texts, then their students contacts will receive the following types of calls by default:
