How do our parents sign up to receive One Call Now text messages?
By texting the word ALERT to 22300
The Miami East School District will periodically utilize the One Call Now system to relay information to parents. The alerts will be sent to your home phone number.
If you would like to switch your home phone number to a cell number instead…simply contact Dr. Rappold with that change at email@example.com
Even if you updated your phone number last year, please contact Dr. Rappold with any phone number you want listed other than your home number this year. This update must be completed every year. Simply contact Dr. Rappold with that change and the name of your son/daughter at firstname.lastname@example.org
Attention Building Volunteers!!!
Our background check for volunteers is changing. Volunteers will now need to fill out a form from the office and submit to Mr. Rohrer. The form will be used to run a background check. The district will pick up the cost for the background check and it will be current for 3 years. We are appreciative of all that our volunteers do at Miami East!
