Up-To-Date Contact Information Vital in an Emergency

Up-To-Date Contact Information Vital in an Emergency
Posted on 01/05/2018
Parents/Guardians should update their contact information with their child’s school whenever they move or change phone numbers.

All parents and guardians are encouraged to update their emergency contact information on file at their child’s school if they or other emergency contacts have moved or changed phone numbers or email addresses since August 2017.

In an emergency, the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) makes every effort to contact parents as quickly as possible using the contact information on file. When contact information is out of date, parents and guardians may not receive important communications.

In a major effort to improve communication with parents, guardians, and students, SBCUSD has been rolling out new and improved communication tools since August 2017. The changes began with a re-designed website that contained updated information and a user-friendly design that meets accessibility requirements for persons with disabilities.

SBCUSD also launched a free mobile app that users can configure to receive notifications from the schools that matter to them, as well as access general information about SBCUSD and its schools and view the District’s social media accounts. Anyone with a smart phone can download the free app by searching for “San Bernardino City USD” in the Google Play or App Store.

Anyone who prefers to receive alerts via text message may sign up with SBCUSD’s partner SchoolMessenger by texting “Yes” without the quotation marks to 67587. Only cell phone numbers on file with a child’s school will receive emergency text messages, even if the number has been signed up with SchoolMessenger. Users may opt out of receiving text messages at any time.

Thanks to the District’s partnership with Peachjar, parents and guardians never have to worry that their child will forget to give them an important school flyer. PDF versions of school flyers are accessible on each school’s webpage by clicking the Peachjar eflyers icon. Parents can also receive email notices of new flyers if they provide a valid email address to their child’s school.
