||Honeywell Instant Alert System|
The Wallingford-Swarthmore School District utilizes a messaging system that allows us to instantly communicate with all of our families and staff members if necessary. The system, Honeywell Instant Alert, enables us to rapidly deliver a single, clear message to all students' parents or guardians by telephone, cell phone, e-mail, or text*.
We will be sending our annual “test message” on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at noon. You do not have to be home for the test to be completed.
Each family's main contact phone number has been entered into the Alert System. The system will deliver phone messages to that main number only unless you take (or have already taken) additional steps. To add alternate phone numbers, or to have messages delivered via e-mail or phone text, follow the simple instructions located at www.wssd.org/honeywell. Any previous changes you made to your account are still in effect. If you do not have access to a computer, please feel free to contact your child's school for assistance.
Instant Alert phone messages will “display” that the call is coming from 610-892-3470 which is the school district's main phone number. If you do not pick up your phone during an alert and you have an answering machine, Instant Alert will leave a message. If you do not have an answering machine, the system will make a total of three attempts to call you to deliver the message.
We intend to use the Instant Alert messaging system to immediately deliver a school closing message once a closing decision has been made. This typically occurs prior to 5:30 AM. If you do not wish to receive a phone message at that time you can customize your profile to receive an e-mail or text message. As always, school closing messages are posted on the front page of the district's website (http://www.wssd.org/) as well.
* If you set up your account to receive text message alerts, you will only receive the message subject via text, not the entire message. We do not recommend relying on text messages only. We suggest you check www.wssd.org to confirm text alert messages for additional details.
If you need assistance with your profile, please go to https://instantalert.honeywell.com and click on the Help Request link on the lower right hand side of the page. Be sure to set your e-mail spam filter to receive e-mail from Honeywell.com. If you do not have access to a computer, please feel free to contact your child’s school for help. We hope you enjoy this new service!
