This school year, you’re tasked with finding solutions to prioritize safety while still providing students the education they’re entitled to and easing the worries of concerned parents.

Your Austin, TX, school community needs clear communication from you in a timely fashion now more than ever. We recommend implementing the latest emergency notification system to make your job a little easier. An emergency notification system is a software system that provides a simple interface to communicate with your students, parents, and staff all at once. You can send your alerts in the form of texts, emails, push notifications, phone calls, and in-building alarms, depending on what the situation calls for. You even have the ability to combine methods to ensure your alert is seen.

The Fastest Way of Sharing Mass COVID-19 Updates

Saying that COVID-19 shook the foundation of the education system earlier this year would be an understatement. With the 24-hour news cycle and new information about the novel coronavirus being released every day, you must be able to communicate to students, parents, and staff any changes your school makes to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Having an emergency notification system helps alleviate any chaos and confusion. You’ll have the power to alert everyone simultaneously of any information and updates that will impact the way your school operates and your students learn. Plus, when your community feels confident in your capability to communicate with them in a timely fashion and manner, your day-to-day is likely to run a lot smoother.

Make Sure Everyone Is On the Same Page with Reliable Information

Emergency notification systems enable you to guide staff, students, and parents to reliable sources for COVID-19 guidelines and information so that there’s never any question or confusion on why your school takes specific precautions. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention always has the most accurate and up-to-date information about the novel coronavirus.

When you share reliable information through your emergency notification system, you can be sure that everyone in your school community gets access to the best information possible and is more likely to be on the same page for your COVID-19 protocol.
