Keeping parents informed and involved helps to assure student safety and improve student success. Therefore, CV School District utilizes multiple tools to communicate building and district emergencies, delays, and cancellations. The most up-to-date information can be found on our Web site; however, the following tools may also be utilized:
Visit www.cvschools.org/enews to register to receive email alerts. CV E-news messages will be sent to communicate building and district news, emergencies, and weather delays/closures. You may subscribe, edit your subscriptions, or unsubscribe at any time by visiting the link above.
The district offers text message notifications for inclement weather and building/district emergencies. To receive a text message, you must register through CV E-news. Please visit the web site – www.cvschools.org/enews - and follow the steps to register your email address and/or cell phone. If you are already a CV E-news subscriber, please visit the web address above and click the “edit existing record” button to subscribe to the text service.
Please be aware that:
- Text messages are limited to 160 characters. Texts will be an abbreviated message that directs the recipient to the Web site for more information.
- Your cell provider may charge a fee for these text messages.
- Text messages will only be sent in cases of delays, closures, unscheduled early dismissals, or emergencies. District-wide delays, closures, early dismissals, and emergencies will be sent via text to the “special alerts” e-news category. Building specific delays, closures, early dismissals, and emergencies will be sent via text to the individual building e-news category in which you register for.
Telephone Alerts (School Messenger)
School Messenger is an essential tool for notification and communication. Within minutes of an emergency, school officials can use School Messenger to deliver a single, clear message to parents or guardians by telephone. School Messenger can also be used to notify you of school closings or delays due to inclement weather. Information will continue to be communicated through our district web page (www.cvschools.org), CV E-News, and local radio/television stations.
Phone numbers used by School Messenger for non-life threatening situations that require prompt notification (i.e., weather, broken water pipes, no power): Student’s home phone number and cell phone number of contact number one, depending on the time of the call.
- Student's home number will be called for two-hour delays and closures announced prior to 8 a.m.
- Student's home number will be called for two-hour delays and closures announced in the evening.
- Student's home number and cell, work, and home number of emergency contact one will be called for closures/early dismissals announced after 8 a.m.
Phone numbers used by School Messenger for EMERGENCIES (life-threatening situations):
- All phone numbers on record for student could be called (i.e. student’s home number, student’s emergency contact number and the work and cell numbers of contact numbers one and two.) Work numbers with extensions cannot be used with an automated system. Be advised that emergency calls intended for parents whose places of employment utilize a receptionist/switchboard operator/automated system may not reach the parent, because the automated message is not personalized with parent’s name.
To change your contact information, you must:
- Visit the school office and request a student information update form.
If you receive a School Messenger call in error (i.e., you have no student in the district), please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests for changes of phone numbers may not be made by email, but must be handled through use of the student information update form (as indicated above).
If there is ever a time in which you do not receive a School Messenger call or other form of notification in which you have registered (text or E-news), but you believe a delay or closure is possible, you should visit our Web site at www.cvschools.org. Information is also sent to selected media outlets (ABC 27, WGAL 8, CBS 21); however, the Web site will contain the most accurate and up-to-date information.
