Test of CCSD Emergency Notification System on Sept. 1

Test of CCSD Emergency Notification System on Sept. 1

The Cherokee County School District tested its School Messenger emergency notification system on Sept. 1, 2017.

As part of the test, we sent test messages to all CCSD parents and the emergency contacts they provided to their children’s schools, and all CCSD employees.

Between 4:30 and 7 p.m. on Sept. 1, parents should have received emails, texts and phone calls to the email addresses and phone numbers you provided to your child’s school. If you did not, please contact your child’s school next week to verify the information we have on file.

To receive School Messenger texts, you must additionally opt-in to the system by texting any one of the following words to the number 68453: subscribe, opt-in or yes. You should receive an automatic response that you’re registered for messages; if you don’t, please contact your wireless provider, as some do not accept SMS messages.

On the home page of this website, you’ll see a red “Emergency Notifications” button that links you to useful information about our notification system and other related topics.

The safety of our students and employees is a top priority; thank you for trusting us with that responsibility.


CCSD to Test School Messenger Notification System Friday, Nov. 20, 2015

Category : CCSD

CCSD will be testing its School Messenger notification system Friday afternoon, Nov. 20, 2015, so parents should expect a text, email or phone call. If parents do not receive a communication by 8 pm Friday evening, they are asked to please check their contact information in the Aspen Parent Portal to be sure it is updated to reflect any changes.

CCSD uses the School Messenger system to send important timely information to parents, such as school closings and other important communications. CCSD will continue its practice of posting important information on its website and through social media; School Messenger is an enhancement of our communication system.

If parents have not signed up for Aspen Parent Portal access for their child, please contact the school front office after Thanksgiving Break to obtain a username and password.
