Albemarle County Public Schools Notification System

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

Emergency messages are sent when there are early dismissals that occur during the school day, cancellations or in the event of a crisis situation at a school.

General messages could include such items as inclement weather calls(school closed or delayed openings), late buses, reminders of important school events, or information about an event at school that is not of an emergency nature but that school officials believe families would want more information about (ex: an extended fire drill at school, a building evacuation, new traffic pattern, etc.)

Parents have the opportunity to sign up for the Emergency Notification System when they register their child for school, and yearly when they review registration and contact information in August. 

If you have children in Albemarle County Public Schools would like to enroll in the Emergency Notification System, or have changes to your contact information for Emergency Notification purposes, please contact your child's school(s) to provide current phone numbers and email addresses.

If you DO NOT have children in Albemarle County Public Schools and are receiving messages in error, please call (434) 974-5777 and choose Option 2 to have your number removed from the system.
