Attention Lone Pine Families! We wish to notify you of an important change regarding messages of a time sensitive nature from school.
From December 9th onward, virtually all of our time-sensitive email communication with you (i.e. late buses, last minute reminders, cancellation of events, etc.) will be through our SchoolMessenger system (this is the system the district uses for snow day announcements, emergency situations, etc).
SchoolMessenger is taking the place of “Listserv” only for time-sensitive announcements or emergency messages from Lone Pine or BHS. It is still important for you to be on the Lone Pine email Listserv for our weekly school and PTO email bulletin, but all time-sensitive communication will occur via the SchoolMessenger system (which you can set up to include text messages, emails, and/or phone calls).
Many Lone Pine families activated their accounts previously. If that is the case (if you've been receiving snow day calls/texts/emails, you are signed up!), follow the directions on our website to review your account and/or make account changes: http://www.bloomfield.org/webconnect/schoolmessenger/index.aspx.
Some SchoolMessenger messages may be emails with attachments, so please make sure you have selected an email option as well as a text and phone option. You can choose which types of announcements you'd like to receive for each method of contact (emergencies, after-hour emergencies, lunch account balance updates, surveys, general messages). We will be using the general message category for those time-sensitive messages from school like late buses and last minute cancellations or important reminders.
If you are newly enrolled or if you have not previously activated your account, your activation instructions and codes are available in the main office or can be picked up at Parent-Teacher conferences November 11th/12th. These codes expire December 9, 2014. If you do not activate by that time, you will not have another opportunity to activate your account until fall 2015. The activation process takes approximately five minutes. If you need assistance activating your account, using the instructions provided in your packet, please call 248.341.5422 and someone will assist you.
