Automated Notification System
Russellville School District uses automated telephone calls, emails, and text messages to share emergency and education-related information with our families. The messages that you receive from the district are not for marketing, commercial, or political purposes.
By providing your contact information to your child's school at the beginning of the year, you consent to receiving automated messages from RSD. You also agree to provide the district with updated contact information when any of the information changes. Please contact your child’s school office if you need to make changes to your contact information or have questions about the automated calling system. If you prefer not to receive phone calls, text messages, or emails, please contact your school office.
Inclement Weather and Emergency Notifications
In the event of an emergency such as an inclement weather delay or cancellation, a tornado warning, a threat to campus, or other events, Russellville School District may change school start or dismissal times for student safety, or implement safety procedures.
In the event of inclement weather, the district will attempt to contact all parents/guardians using the methods listed below. The announcement will be one of the following: (1) the district is closed, (2) school will open later than usual/dismiss earlier than usual, or (3) school buses will run “Snow Routes.”
We will communicate inclement weather or emergency information with parents through:
- Mobile app alerts and email notifications. Please download the RSD mobile app, and provide the school with your current email address
- Automated notification system. Please provide your school with current telephone numbers to reach you and other emergency contacts
- Announcements on district and school websites
- Announcements on social media. Please follow us on Facebook
- Announcements on local and state media. Click here to view a list of state and local media we notify
