Introducing Power Announcement!

We are pleased to introduce the district’s new notification system—Power Announcement!

Power Announcement, which replaces the AlertNow notification system, comes at a significant cost savings to the district while more fully integrating with the district’s PowerSchool data management system (to read our two-part primer about PowerSchool, please click here).

Throughout the year, the district will use Power Announcement to notify parents about emergency situations, school delays or cancellations due to inclement weather, and other school news. Utilizing voice, SMS text, and e-mail, we can send thousands of messages instantly and reliably using this notification system.

Please note: It is very important that we have current contact information—particularly telephone numbers and e-mail addresses—for all of our students’ parents at all times. Please partner with us to ensure that we always have the most up-to-date contact information for your family! We ask that all parents and guardians contact their child’s or children’s school(s) to update e-mail addresses and phone numbers whenever there is a change; it is through these channels that we are able to most expediently contact all parents and guardians in the event of important updates.

If you would like more information, we are happy to help you; please contact our administrative offices at (802) 264-5999.

Your schools and your town are working hard to engage our community. Please encourage your friends and family to subscribe to The Spotlight. When we’re all informed, we make a stronger community!
