Option C Email and Alert System

Recently two notifications were sent out through the Option C parent alert system. If you did not receive an email notification of the weather related NUT day and/or a 9/15/13 email indicating a change in our gr. 5 teacher it is because there is not an email address listed on your Option C account or you have not selected email as an emergency notification preference. This year most mass emails will be sent through Option C, rather than echalk (this system). We are trying to move away from echalk to save costs, and because it is our diocesan required attendance and academic system. Therefore, it is the one system all registered families are entered into. Although our school office inputs mandatory information we do not put in secondary information or determine if you want email, voice and/or text notifications. Families are strongly encouraged to select email as a preference. Keep in mind that texts are limited to a number of characters and voice messages rely on your access to the phone number(s) listed. You may select as many, or as few, alert preferences as you wish. Directions on the Option C system may be viewed by selecting Option C Information on the left side of the echalk home screen. If you have designated an email account as a preference and are still not getting the emails, please check your spam folder.


Parent Email Alerts Updated
We are pleased to announce that the parent email alerts for homework are now sent at 4PM.  For those of you who have not yet registered on the website please follow the directions below. 
Parents are now able to sign up for email alerts from their child's class page.  You will be able to receive emails every time your child's teacher updates the class website.  Logon to the link below or go to the Parent Tab on the homepage, enter your email address and follow the prompts to create your profile. Once you register with the website we will be able to send mass emails about important school information as well.
