AlertNow System Information

Dear Parents,

Keeping you informed is a top priority at RSU #3. Therefore, we are continuing the use of the ALERTNOW Notification Service which allows us to send a telephone, text, or e-mail message to you providing important information about school events or emergencies. We anticipate using ALERTNOW to notify you of school delays or cancellations due to inclement weather, as well as remind you about various events, including report card distribution, open house, field trips, and more. The ALERTNOW system will automatically contact you by phone and/or email to notify you of school cancellations or emergencies.

What you need to know about receiving calls sent through ALERTNOW

  • Caller ID will display the school’s main number when a general announcement is delivered.
  • Caller ID will display 411 if the message is a dire emergency.
  • ALERTNOW will leave a message on any answering machine or voicemail.
  • If the ALERTNOW message stops playing, press any key 1-9 and the message will replay from the beginning.

CLICK HERE to download the AlertNow form. Please return this form to your school secretary. Note that the primary phone number will be called for standard and emergency calls as well as text messages for unknown and unexcused absences; the emergency numbers will only be used in an emergency and all will be dialed simultaneously.  Thank you for your cooperation and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Paul W. Austin, Ph.D.

Superintendent of Schools
