Notifications & Alerts
Manchester Township School District, like most school districts, uses outside vendors to send automated phone calls and e-alerts to parents concerning delayed openings, school closings, early dismissals and other emergencies. These services have been reliable, however, they are activated using the internet and we want you to know that the possibility exists that our automated phone calls and e-mails could be delayed by internet service interruptions, power outages, or other technical glitches. MTSD would like to remind you that there are alternative ways to receive this important information. We recommend you sign up for several different options from the list below:
Automated Phone Calls
Our district uses an automated phone system for emergency and other important notifications. This system is capable of calling, texting and/or emailing all parents in the district within a few minutes. It is important that we have the correct contact information for your child provided through our portal at the start of the school year. To update your information at any time, please call your school office. Also, if you have your phone set to block unknown callers or set to do not disturb, you may want to add the school and district (732-350-5900) phone numbers to your phone directory and/or favorites list.
