Updating your communication language preferences

 

Our latest My Bloomfield upgrade now has the ability to send messages in the language of your choice. If you wish to receive messages from the district, school, or your child's teacher in a language other than English, please follow these instructions.  Please note: messages are written in English and, depending on the language, may have varying translation outcomes.  Some languages are easier to automate language translation. There will always be the option to view the message in English.

  • Step One: visit: www.bloomfield.org and log in to My Bloomfield (use the “My Bloomfield” button on the main page)


     
  • Step Two: click on the "Modify my contact info" button.

  • Step Five: select the parent/guardian you wish to modify.

 

  • Step Six: Modify your primary language preference and then hit the “submit” button in the top, left corner.

What do the notification types mean and when are notifications sent?

 

First, it’s important to note that all announcements (aside from the “emergency” category) observe what are called Quiet Hours. Quiet Hours are between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. Messages sent during that time will be held until after 5 a.m. This allows everyone to disconnect between 11.p.m. and 5 a.m., regardless of notification preferences.

  • “Direct Message Received” is a message between you and one other person.  If you sign up to receive notifications via email or text, you will be able to reply via that email or by text without having to go back to the system to respond.  In this way, two people can have a text message conversation without ever coming back into the system.  (Individual fees and data rates may apply - check with your carrier for more information.)
     
  • “General District Announcements” will range from school cancellation notices to general reminders.  Most announcements, however, will be of a more “immediate” nature, since the district utilizes the weekly email newsletter as the main communication tool for most notices.  If you wish to be notified when school is cancelled due to weather or other circumstances, you will want to be sure to sign up for “General District Announcements” in your preferred form.  As General District Announcements observe Quiet Hours (see above), school cancellation notices are unlikely to be issued between the hours of 11 p.m. and  5 a.m.  While we do our best to notify families as soon as possible, it is likely that snow day notices will not be issued until just after 5 am, when the roads have been fully assessed.
     
  • “General School Announcements” will be important notices from your child’s school.  Schools also utilize weekly email newsletters to communicate information and so these notices are likely to be time-sensitive and important.
     
  • “Class Announcements” are much like the school announcements, but are likely to be more frequent if the teacher is using this service regularly.
     
  • “Group Announcements” are for groups that are formed on this tool without a class.  For example, groups may form around clubs and sports (Tennis Team, Forensics, Model UN, etc.) and each group will determine how to best use the announcements feature to keep members updated (ie. “no practice today” or “please arrive at 9 a.m. instead of 8:30 a.m.).
     
  • Lunch Balance & Attendance notifications: These notices are only sent when triggered.  If a lunch account falls into a negative balance or has a balance between $0.01 and $4.99, an automated message will be sent.  If a BHHS student has an unexcused absence, the system will send an automated notice.
     
  • “Emergency Announcements” is a category we hope never to use.  This category not only overrides our “quiet hours” (11 p.m. - 5 a.m.), but it overrides your ability to “opt out” of receiving messages.  This category is reserved for emergency situations that have a direct and immediate impact on student and staff safety.

How do I unsubscribe to the weekly email newsletters and/or change my subscription preferences?

 

You can subscribe to receive weekly email newsletters and other updates from Bloomfield Hills Schools, special programs, Recreation, Latchkey/Kidz Zone, and more! Please follow the steps below to sign up:

  • Login to your My Bloomfield account. 
  • Note: Families and staff: You already automatically have accounts created for you. If you are not a current family of a student or a staff member and do not have an account, click the “create new account” link on the My Bloomfield login page.
  • Hover your mouse over your name in the top left hand corner of your browser window.
  • Click “subscriptions” in the drop down menu.
  • Click “settings” to the right of current subscriptions - email mailing lists (eNotify)
  • Navigate to “available subscriptions” and check the boxes of the emails you wish to receive. Click the “update settings” button at the bottom of the window.

Not receiving the emails you signed up for? It is possible that you have "globally unsubscribed" from all BHS emails. Please follow the steps above to manage your subscriptions. It is also possible that your e-mail server is identifying BHS emails as spam and either adding them to your spam folder or bouncing emails back (not allowing emails to reach your inbox). After a certain number of bounce backs, your email is moved to a "do not email" list.

How to be sure that you will receive BHS eNotify email in the future:

  • Add the email "noreply@bloomfieldhills.myenotice.com" (do not include quotation marks) to your e-mail address book or contact list.
  • Check for and remove the emails from that address from your spam inbox.
  •  Email Communications@bloomfield.org, requesting that your email address be added back on the distribution list.
