Lincoln School Emergency and Standard Notification System for Faculty and Staff

 

Do not enter Lincoln's phone number and your extension.  This is an automated system and will only dial a single phone number and not extensions.  If you enter 331-9696, the Front Desk will be deluged with calls and never know for whom they are intended, so you will never get the message.

Remember that faculty and students will also receive notification through email and it will be posted on television stations, the Lincoln web site and the phone answering message will be changed.

What you need to know about receiving calls sent through ALERTNOW

  • Caller ID will display the school’s main number - Lincoln School - 401-331-9696 - when a general announcement is delivered.
  • Caller ID will display 411 if the message is an emergency.
  • ALERTNOW will leave a message on any answering machine or voicemail.
  • If the ALERTNOW message stops playing, press any key 1-9 and the message will replay from the beginning.
  • This is an automated system and will call a phone number only; it will not dial extensions.

The successful delivery of information is dependent upon accurate contact information, so please make certain that we have your most current phone numbers.  If this information changes during the year, please let Teryl know immediately.

ALERTNOW Information Form for Faculty and Staff

NOTE: This system does NOT replace all of the other current means of communicating a school cancellation - television and radio broadcasts, the Lincoln homepage, and the school answering system.
Those notifications will all continue to be operative. This is an addition to those systems already in place.

There are two levels of calling - emergency and standard.

Emergency is only used when we have to dismiss early or have a crisis.  In this case all numbers will be called and all emails will be notified.

Standard is the more commonly used system which will be used for non-emergency notifications (e.g. a snow day or the kinds of notification around a school event such as Lumina).  

With this in mind, enter phone numbers and emails with some thought. numbers will be called at 5:00 a.m. when we are cancelling school for a snow day; you probably wouldn't want to enter your mother's phone number in this slot.  More typically this would be your own number.

Do not enter Lincoln's phone number and your extension.  This is an automated system and will only dial a single phone number and not extensions.  If you enter 331-9696, the Front Desk will be deluged with calls and never know for whom they are intended, so you will never get the message.

Please enter seven-digit phone numbers (area code + number) in the following format: xxx-xxx-xxxx. Do not include a preceding 1- or enclose the area code in parentheses.
