The Gloversville School District has made changes to the tools it uses to communicate with parents, staff and community members via phone, email and SMS text message. The district has moved all of its mass notification capabilities to ParentLink, a communications tool that replaces the district’s use of Connect and School News Notifier (SNN.) It also is the company powering the GESD district app, which delivers news, calendar information, sports information and more directly on your smart phone or tablet.
Download the app for FREE in the Google Play store (Android) and App Store/iTunes (Apple) so that you can stay connected on the go and not miss important news from the district.
Parents, students and staff do NOT need to sign up for email, text and phone notifications through ParentLink because contact information is pulled from the district’s student management system, SchoolTool. It is recommended that parents/guardians check their SchoolTool account to make sure the district has your most current contact information.
If you are a parent of a student in the district, you are automatically enrolled in the emergency notification system to receive phone calls from the district. You do not need to have a smart phone or a tablet to receive notifications or alerts from the district by phone call or email. If your contact information has changed, it is important to let your school office know immediately so our records can be updated.
Please Note: Effective June 30, 2018, the district will discontinue its use of School News Notifier (SNN) — subscribers of this service will no longer receive email or SMS text alerts through this system.
