What are the best methods for me to receive timely WSD notifications?
Currently, the preferred methods for getting WSD notifications are to visit the main wsd.net web site, as well as your school web site. Other options include checking our district Twitter account or Facebook page. Please keep in mind that our Facebook page is not monitored 24/7, so any messages you send may not be responded to immediately.
We also offer the ability to sign up for email and text alerts. However, due to the volume of message that are being sent out, these two options are not as timely.
To sign up to follow our Twitter account, text “follow @wsdnotification” to 40404.
To verify your phone or email address, please log in to myweber.wsd.net
What: The emergency notifier is linked to all email addresses, all mobile phone numbers, the district twitter account, the district Facebook account, as well as all Weber School District web pages. It is accessed through a button in MyStudent that is only accessible by particular district administrators.
When: This is for emergency type notifications; (i.e. school closures, late start, early out, lockouts,) and other situations when we need to get information to parents and students. There is no ability to “unsubscribe” from this list.
Who: The Emergency Notifier can only be initiated by the Superintendancy. Subsequent permission can be granted from the superintendent to the director and supervisor of Technical Services, the director of Secondary Education, the director of Elementary Education, Community Relations/Safety Administrator, and Technical Services Web Development emergency notification support. (Blayne Christensen, Geoff Brooks, Justin Reeve) Geoff Brooks is the point of contact.
How: To activate the Emergency Notifier contact one of the persons in the above list. You must have myStudent installed and updated to access the button.
