Martin County West Schools is excited to provide our families with a new communication tool. The MCW SOS group donated funds which allowed the District to purchase the Honeywell Instant Alert system. This system will make it easier to reach our families quickly and effectively.
School administrators can use Instant Alert to deliver a single, clear message to parents and guardians by telephone, cell phone, text, and/or e-mail.
Instant Alert will be used to notify you of weather related announcements such as late starts, early dismissals, and school closings. Instant Alert can also be used to keep you informed of and remind you about school activities.
You will be receiving information soon with directions to set up your online profile. When you set up your profile, you will be able to add as many devices and contact numbers (cell, home, work, etc.) as needed for your family. You will also be able to determine if you would like to receive Instant Alert communications via voice mail, text, and/or e-mail. Please be sure to set up your contact information as soon as possible so that you are able to make the best use of Instant Alert.
Watch your e-mail for a separate communication that will contain the step-by-step directions for getting your Instant Alert account set up. We hope you enjoy this new service!
