Benton Community School District ---NEW Automated Alert System - SchoolMessenger - PLEASE READ & RESPOND
The Benton Community School District is moving from using 4 separate automated school alert systems to 1 new streamlined system - SchoolMessenger. We will also continue to use the Bobcat Voice Link.
Weather-related, school or activity changes and emergency messages will be sent out as quickly as possible and most likely will be deployed as early as 5:30 a.m. and as late as 9:00 p.m. All other regular and informational messages will be sent out around 5:00 p.m.
Please use the form below to provide Benton Community School District with your phone numbers (Cell, home, work) and email addresses that you wish for us to use for receiving text messages, email, and automated phone calls. We will use SchoolMessenger for our communications such as school closings, late starts, early outs, road situations, emergencies, and building-specific messages.
All information provided below is confidential and will only be used by District Office and building secretarial staff to update our student management system (PowerSchool) and SchoolMessenger system.
If we do NOT have the phone numbers that you wish to be called or receive a text message in our systems, you will NOT receive messages from the school. If we do NOT have your email address(es), you will NOT receive emails from the school.
Providing this information is OPTIONAL, however, if we do not have correct and accurate phone numbers and email addresses, SchoolMessenger will not call you or send messages.
When you receive a message, text, or phone call from SchoolMessenger, it will show that it is coming from Benton Community. Please do NOT call the school offices. Please listen to the message, read your email, and/or read the text message. Our school offices become inundated with phone calls and in the event of an emergency or weather-related situation whereby the school will be let out early or delayed, we are unable to attend to our students and transportation department if we receive numerous phone calls.
When we begin using SchoolMessenger in a few days, and in the event that you happen to miss a SchoolMessenger message on your phone or email, you can listen to your phone voicemail or call the Bobcat Link where we will copy the same message.
(local landline) 830-2164 or (cell/long distance) 515-830-2164
If you have questions, please contact the school building where your child attends.
