Emergency Closures

We are implementing a new system to enable us to quickly communicate messages to the school community in an effective and efficient way. This is used in many Hertfordshire County Council schools.

The system is called Everbridge. It enables parents to receive texts and email alerts from schools to communicate emergency messages, such as in the event where the school is closed.

To sign up, please go to:

https://member.everbridge.net/index/892807736725489#/signup.

This will take you to the Sign Up page where you should click on the Sign Up button located at the top right hand side of the page on the grey strip. From there, follow the instructions. It should take no more than 5 minutes to register. Please ensure that your details are up-to-date – these may be edited at any time.

Each contact within the system can have two devices added for each communication type if you wish – this means that in addition to adding your own mobile number and email address, you could include the mobile number and email address of a partner or relative in your registration process. They, too, would then receive any messages in relation to our school’s closure. Alternatively, other people can register themselves separately.

If you have children at more than one school, you can register for those schools too in a single registration process by selecting all schools at which you have children.

If you require any assistance in signing up for this service, please do not hesitate to ask the school office.
