Parent Notification System

Keeping Students & Parents Informed

Autry Technology Center uses a parent notification system to keep students and parents informed.

 

How it Works

When you receive a phone call, the caller ID will display Autry’s phone number, 580-242-2750. There may be a short pause at the beginning of the message.

Live Answers: There is a short pause at the beginning of the message, usually just a few seconds. Answer your phone as you normally would “Hello” and hold for the message to begin. Multiple “Hello’s” will delay the message. Inform all family members of this process.

Answering Machines and Voice mail: The system will detect that your machine has answered and will play the
recording to your machine. The maximum number of rings before hang up is 5. Make sure your
machine answers by 4 rings or you may miss the message.

Message Repeat: At the end of the message you will be prompted to ‘press one’ to hear the message again. This is very effective when a child answers the phone and hands it to a parent, who can then hear the message in its entirety.

Emails: If you supply the school with your email address, you can be included in the email broadcasting service.

Attendance: Since Autry is using SchoolReach for attendance, you will be notified daily if your child misses class. To minimize these calls, make sure to call in and inform the school when you KNOW your child will miss classes on a given day.
