We have a new service available to parents and students of Macon R-1 Schools. It is called “Tiger Alerts”.
Tiger Alerts is a communication service that
will enable Macon R-1 Schools to deliver important messages directly to
your cell phone, wireless PDA or computer. Messages will be sent to
notify you of various school events, such as school closings due to
weather, early dismissals, cancellations of athletic practices or games
due to weather. If you participate in this program, you will receive a
notification through your personal cell phone of important events that
are out of the ordinary. To participate in this program you must enroll
at the following website. http://my.textcaster.com/ServePopup.aspx?id=1233
Follow the signup instructions on this website.
Select all of the groups that you would like to receive messages about.
A family with a high school student might want to select the high
school group and softball if their daughter was participating in
softball. After enrolling you will receive an authorization code on your
phone. Enter it into the correct field. The next step is confirmation
about your enrollment.
Please check your cell phone plan for any text message fees your wireless provider may charge. This
is a SPAM-free application. Your name and personal contact information
are protected and will remain private. You may Unsubscribe or Change
Message Preferences anytime by clicking on the link above.
If you have any questions about this service
please call the school building office that your child is enrolled in
for more information.
