Anticipatory Calls on School Closings and How to Set your Call Preferences in SchoolMessenger

During the winter months, bad weather sometimes impacts our area during the night or early morning, making it difficult to make a school closing announcement in the afternoon or early evening.  In an effort to help parents prepare, the Communications Dept. will make a call to all stakeholders on SchoolMessenger in the afternoon or evening before an anticipated weather event that could cause the closing of schools. This is to let stakeholders be aware of the possibility, and alert them to make plans “just in case.”  If schools will be closed, you can expect a call the following morning (between 5 and 5:15 a.m.) as you have in the past.  If you do not receive a phone call, schools will be open. If the information about a school closing is known earlier than 5 a.m., information will be posted to the CMCSS website, the CMCSS Facebook page, Twitter, and released to Nashville TV stations and local radio. When weather moves in early enough to make the decision on the afternoon/evening before, we will continue to follow our procedure of sending out a notification then.You can now choose how you want to be contacted by your school or the district. SchoolMessenger’s InfoCenter allows the ability to view and listen to messages from your school or district, add, delete and verify your contact information, and personalize how you receive school communications such as this one.  InfoCenter centralizes these communications in a unified inbox where you may access the contents of emails as well as voice and text messages.  If you are associated with students in different schools, all matching records will be linked to your account.  Simply set your communication preferences inside the SchoolMessenger InfoCenter parent portal.
