GENERAL Crisis and Emergency Communication

The safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is a priority and Ascension Public Schools will provide current information about any situation that impacts schools as soon as it is available using a combination of the following methods:

  • Website
    • www.apsb.org : Official notifications of school closures are posted on our website's homepage and newsroom.
  • SchoolMessenger
    • Phone Calls: Broadcast messages to phones of parents/guardians and staff
    • E-mails: Broadcast message to emails of students, faculty and staff 
    • Text Messaging: Broadcast messages to registered cell phones of parents/guardians
  • Social Media
Ascension Public Schools has an agreement with SchoolMessenger to deliver emergency information by SMS text, voice and/or email messages. Ascension Public Schools will use SchoolMessenger to provide information and directions related to significant events that pose a threat to the school community.
 

Ascension Public Schools also has a parish-wide agreement with RemindApp. RemindApp is for teacher to student messaging and is NOT an official emergency notification system. Please refer to the above methods for official emergency communication methods.
