Telephone Broadcast Service
In our effort to improve communication between parents and school, the Lebanon School District is implementing a telephone broadcast system that will enable school personnel to notify all households and parents by phone within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event that causes early dismissal, school cancellation or late start. The service may also be used from time-to-time to communicate general announcements or reminders. This service is provided by SchoolMessenger, a company specializing in school-to-parent communications. The Lebanon School District will continue to report school closings due to snow or weather on radio and tv and will use this system as an overlay to the public announcements.
When used, the service will call all phone numbers in our selected parent contact lists and will deliver a recorded message from a school administrator. The service will deliver the message to both live answer and answering machines. No answers (phones ringing over 40 sec.) and busies will be automatically retried twice in fifteen minute intervals after the initial call.
In an important effort to make the best and most accurate use of the SchoolMessenger system please be sure to provide the school with your current phone numbers and emails.
