Electronic School Notification System

Albemarle County Public Schools utilizes a mass messaging system to keep families and employees notified of major events within the school division. This system uses phone, email and text messaging to send messages within two levels, Emergency and General:

  • Emergency messages are sent in the event of an early closing decision made during the school day or in the event of a crisis situation at a school.
  • General messages might include such announcements as a school closing or delay due to inclement weather, a late school bus, reminders of important school events, or information about school activities, such as an extended fire drill or a new traffic pattern.
