District 303 uses Finalsite (formerly Parentlink), a computerized telephone and email system to deliver recorded messages to all of its students and staff. Calls may be about general district-wide issues (i.e. weather-related school closings) or specific school-level topics. This powerful communication tool also lets the District distinguish between emergency and non-emergency messages.
Non-emergency calls go to the student’s and parent's primary telephone number as recorded in the District 303 student information database.
Emergency calls will go to the student’s primary telephone number, and ALL cellular, and work telephone numbers listed for the first two PARENT/GUARDIAN contacts as recorded in the District 303 student information database. As the parent/guardian you can view the listed contact phone numbers by logging into the Home Access Center from the For Parents menu and reviewing your student's records. If telephone number changes need to be made, your student's school must be contacted by a listed Parent/Guardian.
Important Message About Finalsite
In situations involving weather related school closings and early dismissals, the Emergency Contact feature of Finalsite will be utilized. The most important tip about Finalsite messages is to make sure you listen to the complete message. There is often a delay before the message begins. If you miss anything in the message and need to listen again, just stay on the line and the message will repeat. Information about school closings is also posted on the District 303 website and on emergencyclosingcenter.com.
