In an effort to reduce confusion regarding sign up procedures for the Loveland City School District alert notification system, the district has the system default to automatic sign up, and is directly connected to the information on the Emergency Medical Authorization (EMA) form.
Please note: The district only engages the alert notification system during school closures, or during emergency situations; work phone numbers entered into the EMA will not be contacted. While closings due to inclement weather situations are communicated multiple ways, the district needs the ability to alert you quickly in an emergency situation should one occur. This is why it is of paramount importance that you are signed up for alerts, and that you keep your EMA forms up to date.
If you do NOT wish to receive the alert notifications, you will need to “opt out” of the system. Please click here
to access detailed instructions on how to opt out of the system. If you have any specific questions, please contact Central Registrar Lou Ann Downey by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
