Electronic School Notification System

Albemarle County Public Schools has a system to keep parents, 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 messages.

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 could include such items as a school closing or delay due to inclement weather, late buses, reminders of important school events, or information about a school event 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 Electronic School 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 and would like to enroll in the Electronic School 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.

Questions? If you have a question, please contact your child's school.
