Thank you for your continued patience as the district has worked to identify issues with and improve our notification alert system. We understand how frustrating it can be when a system that is so important to district communications is not functioning correctly, and – again – we sincerely appreciate how understanding you have been as we worked through this process.
In an effort to reduce confusion regarding sign up procedures for the Loveland City School District alert notification system, effective immediately, the district has restructured the system from an “opt in” on the Emergency Medical Authorization (EMA) form to automatic sign up for all parents with contact information listed on the EMA. These changes were in place during the Tuesday, Jan. 16, district closure, and the remaining issues with the system that some of our users experienced during that closure were identified by our vendor and have been corrected.
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 see the attached pdf for 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
