The East Allen County School System announced today the launch of a systemwide parent notification system. The school system, which serves more than 9,000 students, will use this new technology to reach families quickly in the event of an emergency, and improve the overall quality and frequency of home-school communications.

Superintendent, Dr. Ken Folks said, “East Allen County Schools will be using School Messenger to instantly send information to parents. At registration, parents will provide contact information to receive information via voice, email and/or text. This system will provide principals and central office administrators the ability to communicate important information to parents immediately and efficiently”. “In times of emergency, School Messenger provides massive calling capabilities that will enable school officials to send thousands of messages in a matter of minutes. Doing so not only provides parents with accurate, real-time information as the situation unfolds, but it also creates a comprehensive program that places a clear priority on parent communications” said Tamyra Kelly, Public Relations Liaison.

School Messenger is a leading provider of notification solutions for education. Thousands of school districts, public schools, colleges, universities, private schools and other educational facilities in all 50 states depend on the company’s innovative solutions to connect and effectively communicate with millions of parents, students and staff every day.
