Emergency Info

Emergency Notification System:

SHRSD utilizes the School Messenger Notification system to notify families and staff of school closings, delayed openings, emergencies, etc.  ONLY the contact numbers and email addresses that have been provided to the District and entered into our student information system (Aspen) will receive an early phone call, email and/or text alert informing them of delayed openings, early dismissals, closings, or other emergency or important notifications.  

If you do not receive the notification or want to make changes to whom/how notices are received, please send an email to follett.aspen@shrsd.org with your request. Be sure to add your full name and desired changes as well as the student(s) name this is in reference to.  Be sure to also provide a callback number in case we need to speak to you in greater detail.

NOTE: To receive text alerts, you must Opt-In from any cell phone on record in Aspen.  See the Text Alert Opt-In Flyer on this page for more info or simply send a text message to 67587 with the word YES to opt-in.  Please note the cell phone must be added to Aspen in order to actually receive text alerts to it, even if it has been opted-in.

Delayed Opening Info:

School will begin two hours late during all delayed openings unless otherwise specified. Bus runs for delayed openings will also begin two hours late. Therefore, students should expect their bus to pick them up two hours later than their normally scheduled pickup time.

School Breakfast will not be served when we have delayed openings!

Backup Emergency Phone Line:

In the event of a major area power failure or circumstance that knocks out our Internet and/or Phone System, some or all of the District's phone numbers may not work. We currently have a backup phone line that our phone system should failover to in situations like this.

If our phone systems are down and your call is an urgent emergency ONLY, please try us at 609-397-8088. This line should ring the High School Main Office. 

If situationally necessary, we will publish additional information to our District and/or School websites to further inform our parents/community further regarding methods of calling in. We will also utilize our Emergency Notification system to alert parents/guardians.
