Emergency Parent Notification
SWIFTREACH Networks, Inc., the emergency notification service providing “alerts” to residents in the town of Cedar Grove, recently implemented an improved communications system for the 2019-2020 school year.
SWIFTK12 in its simplest form is a system that makes phone calls to specific people or areas in the event of an emergency, school closing and for sharing important information. The calls you will receive from this system will have a caller ID of 973-320-0160. If you miss a call and dial back the caller ID number, you will be able to listen to the entire message.
As past practice, emergency contact information is extracted by the Genesis database that currently houses all Student/Parent demographic /contact information at each school. In order to update any of the existing contact information, changes must now be made through the Genesis parent portal found on the Cedar Grove Website.
The following methods of communication are being utilized by the Cedar Grove School District, and while it’s not necessary to receive all of the messages, the goal is to make sure that at least one contact method is successful. Home phone call, cell phone call, text messaging and emailing will remain the current method of receiving Cedar Grove “Alerts”.
Should you choose not to be contacted, please inform the school office.
Additional “Alert” locations to be shared with Family or Friends:
- cgschools.org Home page will show a banner with the updated school alert
- Major news channels, such as CBS(2), WNBC(4), Fox(5), WABC(7), NJ(12) and FIOS
If you are in need of assistance, or have further questions, please contact your child’ school.
