General Announcement: Intended for school activities and general informative news. Delivery is based on each member's notification preferences (in-app, email, text, phone call) in addition to the announcement creator's delivery method selection (email, text, and/or phone call). General announcements will not send during district quiet hours, but will send as soon as the hours expire.
Emergency Announcement: Intended for urgent matters such as a weather cancellation or school lockdown. Due to the serious nature of Emergency situations, notifications send to ALL communication channels available (in-app, email, SMS text, phone call). Emergency announcements may only be sent for approved “Emergency Purposes” and will send immediately, overriding district quiet hours. Please refer to the TCPA Guidelines.
To send an announcement, please see Creating Announcements.
