MSAD 6 has been using Infinite Campus for our alert system for over a year now. This system allows for more flexibility in the type of messages you receive and how.
Parents/guardians are able to log into their Infinite Campus Portal - click on Contact Preferences and select what types of messages they wish to receive for each phone number/email address you have listed in IC. Please note: only parent/guardian information is available for selection.
Should a parent/guardian not currently have an IC portal account, please contact your child's school for your activation code.
If you a portal account but cannot remember your username or password or both, please submit a tech ticket at techhelp.bonnyeagle.org for assistance.
Staff are able to log into their IC staff account, go to Census - My Data - Request Demographic Update - select "I am adding or correcting my information" and then choose how they wish to receive each different type of message (attendance, behavior and teacher would not be applicable for staff members unless they have children attending a school in the district).
PLEASE NOTE: Changes are not immediate. They are sent to the tech office and then will show once processed.
The different types of messages and what they are used for are:
Emergency - this will be used for immediate contact with the parents/guardians at schools for extreme extenuating circumstances. Please leave all your methods of contact selected for this option.
Attendance - this will be used to alert parents/guardians of their child’s absence at the school.
Behavior - is not used at this time.
General Notification - this will be used for school newsletters, individual school announcements, and general district wide announcements.
Priority Notification - this will be used for school closings, early release or late arrival notices due to weather and other unexpected issues (power outages, etc).
Teacher - this is used by teachers for notification of grades, missing assignments, and other classroom announcements. This method is email only.
