Sadly, far too many school districts in the United States have had some experience with what a worst-case scenario looks like.

Whether it’s a natural disaster or a school shooting, in the midst of these frightening situations it is important to get potentially life-saving information out to parents and the public as quickly as possible.

Our Text-to-Banner service makes it possible to do so, via your school’s website.

How Does it Work?

It’s a simple three-step process that takes just seconds:

  • Select the type of banner required using pre-loaded keywords (alert, emergency, all clear, etc.)
  • Add text to the banner template 
  • Press “send” and the website is immediately updated

Why Texting?

Besides the speed and convenience of sending a message this way, texting has proven to be consistently more reliable in times of natural or manmade disasters than phone calls or emails.

Text Good News Too!

Of course, this service can also be used in non-crisis situations. Celebrate the victory of a your school debate team or report the results of student elections, or remind the public of the date and time of the next upcoming PTA meeting. You are sure to find a multitude of opportunities to stay in touch with your community.
