This is Only a Test

Parent Notification System Testing Wednesday, October 28

BHM Schools wants to ensure that we are communicating with parents in the most effective way possible. On Wednesday, October 28, 2015, mid-morning, the district will send out a district-wide emergency test message to parents and guardians from our parent notification system. You should receive a call, email and text messages (whatever information you have on file with your child's school). Especially with the upcoming winter months, we want to be sure parents/guardians don't miss any important messages from the school or the district about cancellations or delays. Remember this is ONLY a TEST and NO action will likely be necessary.
