Honeywell Instant Alert


Keeping parents informed and involved helps to assure student safety and improve student success. With today's on-the-go lifestyles, it has become more difficult for schools to reach families quickly and effectively. This is why we have decided to implement a new system called Honeywell Alert for Schools.

Instant Alert for Schools is an essential tool for notification and communication. Within minutes of an emergency, school offices can use Instant Alert to deliver a single, clear message to the students' parents or guardians by telephone, cell phone, e-mail, page or PDA in any combination. Instant Alert can also be used to notify you of a school closing due to inclement weather. It's an equally effective way to keep you informed of everyday activities, such as event times and locations as well as schedule changes.

Instant Alert is Internet based, allowing a family to maintain a secure, password protected online profile. Below please find instructions for accessing the system and creating your profile. You can log into your profile at any time to update your contact information. Maintaining the accuracy of your profile will increase the ability of the school to keep you informed.
