SCHOOL CLOSURE NOTIFICATION SYSTEM
Boxmoor Primary School has signed up for a School Closure Notification System, in the event we have to close the school for reasons of bad weather or in an emergency. The system notifies all official departments, staff and parents. To receive messages by SMS and e.mail you will need to register using the instructions below.
Please go to the following:
This link will direct you to the “Sign Up” page where they should click on the “sign up” button located at the top right hand side of the page on the grey strip and from there follow the instructions. It should take no more than 5 minutes to register.
Each contact within the system can have 2 devices added for each communication type if you wish – this means that in addition to adding your own mobile number and email address, you could include the mobile number and email address of a partner or a grandparent in the registration process. They too would then receive any messages in relation to the school’s closure. Alternatively, interested parties could register themselves separately.
If a parent / guardian has children at more than one school you can register for those schools too in a single registration process by selecting all schools you have children at.
Once signed up you will receive messages relating to the status of your child’s school/s.
This system will be used in addition to the usual methods of notifying parents of school closures i.e. ParentMail, the school website, carrier pigeon etc. . . .
We will endeavour to stay open and I would like to reassure you that the decision to close the school is never taken lightly. This decision however, is dependent on staffing levels and health and safety considerations.
