Keeping parents informed and involved helps to assure student safety and improve student success. With today’s on-the-go lifestyles, it has become more difficult for schools to reach families quickly and effectively. This is why OLS has implemented the Honeywell Instant Alert for Schools.
Instant Alert for Schools is an essential tool for notification and communication. Within minutes of an emergency, school officials can use Instant Alert to deliver a single, clear message to the students’ parents or guardians by telephone, cell phone, e-mail, pager or PDA in any combination. Instant Alert can also be used to notify you of a school closing due to inclement weather. It’s an equally effective way to keep you informed of everyday activities, such as event times and locations as well as schedule changes.
To set up your Honeywell Instant Alert profile, please visit the Honeywell Alert website.
Instant Alert is Internet-based, allowing each family to maintain a secure, password protected online profile. Maintaining the accuracy of your profile will increase the ability of the school to keep you informed.
Your online profile will enable you to:
- Input your personal contact information
- Select which type of school information you would like to receive on each of your contact devices
- Add contact information of other caretakers of your children, such as a grandparent or neighbor
- View the alerts that have been sent to you in the past
If you need assistance with your profile, please visit the Honeywell Alert website, or contact OLS School at (973) 762-5169. Be sure to set your e-mail spam filter to receive e-mail from honeywell.com.
