Mass Phone Notification

  • Remember that phone call you received from the school district last winter announcing that school was closed because of inclement weather? The call was made to the home of every district student using a rapid-notification system that delivers messages in minutes. 

    The Blackboard system is now in use in the Rush-Henrietta Central School District. This technology allows district administrators to record, schedule, and send personalized voice messages to thousands of families within minutes. This communication tool also distributes the district and principal E-News messages, giving the district a more powerful way to quickly and reliably reach the entire school community. To make the system as efficient as possible, please enter the contact information you’d like used with this system on your student’s blue card at the beginning of the school year. Then, update home, work, and cell phone numbers with your child’s school as soon as any changes occur. 

    Thank you for your continued support of the district’s efforts to enhance communication between the home and school.
