NISD Getting New Emergency Alert System

August 1, 2010

All parents of Northside ISD students will be getting an important phone call Monday.  That's when the district will be testing their new "School Messenger" alert system.

The system will automatically contact the parents of the 95,000 students and 13,000 students in the district.  Monday will just be a test, but future calls could be about emergency situations in the district, any weather delays or closings, or other important information parents should know immediately.

If you're an NISD parent and you don't get a call Monday, call your school with your updated contact information.

Other school districts, like South San, San Antonio, Judson and Harlandale already have similar systems in place.
