Electronic School Notification System

Albemarle County Public Schools uses an Electronic School Notification System (ESNS) to share important information with families through voice, email and text messaging. This system is used to send general information as well as emergency alerts:

  • General (non-emergency) messages might announce, for example, a school schedule change due to inclement weather, a late school bus, an important school event or activity, or a student absence.
  • Emergency messages are sent in the event of an early closing decision made during the school day or a crisis situation at a school.
