Saginaw Township Community Schools
Parent Notification System
Saginaw Township Community Schools uses the SchoolMessenger parent/staff notification system. The primary purpose of this system is to alert parents in case of an emergency, but there are also many other uses including:
The system can handle up to 10,000 calls a minute. Allowing for trying additional times after busy signals or invalid phone numbers, district-wide alerts should be completed in well under 30 minutes.
For this system to work, it is important that we have your correct contact information. You can verify your phone numbers and change your email address on-line using Family Access. To do this, log in at http://www.stcs.org/family and click on the "Account Info" tab. Students/Parents, please contact your Building Secretary if you need to change/add a phone number or if you do not have your Family Access ID and password. Please be aware that if we remove your number from the school closing notification list, you will not receive emergency notifications. If you do not have a home phone, your cell phone will be treated as your home phone. If you have your numbers removed, please make sure that your email address is current, every call is accompanied by an email. Please do not remove valid phone numbers from our system. If you do not want a number included in the automated alert system, we can set a flag on the number.
Emergency and non-scheduled school closing calls will be sent to both home and cell phone numbers , most other calls, including scheduled school closing reminders, will go to the home phone only. All calls are accompanied by an email.
If you are not an STCS student, parent, or staff member, but receive STCS notification messages in error, please contact Jim Mitchell at (989) 399-8050 to get removed. This is for non-parents only, calls from parents will be directed to their respective schools.
