The Williamsville Central School System provides an emergency notification system in which parents, faculty, staff, students and community members can sign up to receive emergency notifications through e-mail, text message, and robo call.  Please note: The District primarily uses e-mail and text message to send out messages.

When signing up to receive emergency notifications, the Williamsville Central School District and District Planetarium options are auto-checked. Subscribers may uncheck a box if they so choose.  Faculty and staff, families, and community members may select individual schools of interest to receive notices of an emergent situation affecting only those particular schools (e.g., a power outage).

Because the District is using a subscriber-based system, users are given the option to unsubscribe whenever a message is sent.

NOTE: Text messages for emergency notifications are more reliable and immediate than email messaging. Delayed email notices have been a recurring problem. Some email service providers delay delivery or blacklist high volume “robo” emails as spam, including mass notifications originating from a school district. Please be advised that you may not receive an e-mail message in a timely manner.
