PCS utilizing new alert system
Perkins County Schools is now utilizing a new notification system to keep parents informed of changes, inclement weather and low and negative lunch balances.
The new system, School Messenger, replaces the previous system, Tyco Alert.
School Messenger will display on caller ID as PCS Elementary and leave a voicemail if unanswered. The school requests parents check their voicemail messages before calling the school.
Low lunch balance alert calls will begin when a student’s lunch balance reaches $5. The school requests parents keep a $5 balance in their child’s lunch account even if they do not eat school lunch to avoid the low balance call.
