Keeping families informed in a timely manner helps to ensure student safety and improve student success and growth. To make sure that you are receiving school news and alerts in the ways that work best for you, Saint Leo the Great School utilizes the communications system SchoolMessenger .
With SchoolMessenger, parents have 24/7/365 access to important school notifications such as weather, emergency alerts, school closings, cancellations of after school events, transportation issues, and school information/activities.
The following category definitions explain which category will be utilized by the school to alert parents and staff to the various situations. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list, but rather a sampling of the types of notification for each category.
- General – Most of our notifications are in this form. This type of message would be basic school information, activities, announcements, and PTA events. Emergency contacts may want to opt out of this broadcast type, whereas primary guardians would like to receive it.
- Non-School Hours Emergency – This category of messages includes school wide issues that are sent outside the normal school hours. Messages in this category include items such as emergency closings, delayed openings, and other urgent notices. Primary Guardians will need to be notified of this type of message, however, secondary contacts may wish to opt out of these non-school hour messages.
- School Hours Emergency – This category of messages includes school wide issues that are sent during normal school hours. Messages in this category include items such as unreported absences, emergency closings, early dismissals, health and safety issues, and other urgent notices. All contacts might need to be notified of this because primary guardians could be working.
All families with a student(s) enrolled at Saint Leo the Great School have a secure and verified account through the email address and phone numbers that Saint Leo’s has on file.
