AlertNOW - Sign Up NOW for Text Alerts
Keeping you informed is a top priority at Louisburg School District - which is why we have adopted the ALERTNOW Notification System.
In addition to phone and e-mail communication, we are excited to provide you with an additional way to be notified in the event of inclement weather or an emergency. As of February 25, 2013, we have 943 sign ups for this text feature.
Parents now have the option of receiving text messages from the district in the event of an emergency at their child's school or an emergency at the district level. Parents must opt-in to receive this text messaging service because there may be additional charges for text messaging based on the contract with your phone company.
To sign-up to receive this new text service:
- Visit the portal of the Louisburg School District AlertNow text site at www.alertnowsms.com
- Enter Louisburg's six-digit PIN: 416cat and click Opt-In.
- Provide a primary and an optional, secondary cell phone number.
- Select which building(s) you would like to receive text messages from.
- Agree to the text terms and conditions and then submit the information.
After confirmation, the Louisburg School District will be able to send emergency alerts to the designated cell phones, keeping parents informed of the latest information.
Since this alert system is provided by a new provider, you'll need to sign up again because the previous vendor system is no longer activated. If you have questions about the district new automatic notification system, please call Pam Best at (913) 837-1700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

NOTE: Louisburg USD 416 is using an automated voice and e-mail system to share pertinent information with our staff and parents this year. You do not need to sign up to receive these messages. However, if you have a preferred e-mail or phone number you would like to use please let your childâs school know. If you would like to opt out of this service you will need to put that in writing and deliver it to your childâs school.
It is important to note that you may see a missed call on your cell phone until the message is delivered. We hope this system will enhance our communication with you through the school year.
