Sandusky City Schools Instant Connect - New Communication Tool for the District
Hello Blue Streak Family!

We have rolled out our new communication tool called Instant Connect! This is a change from the One Call Now system we have used previously. This new tool will allow us to send calls and texts to all of our district families. We will now be using this software to notify you in the event of a 2 Hour Delay, Closing, or other important district alert. If you do not receive a notification, please fill out this Google Form so we can make sure your phone number is added. This form can also be found on the Parent page of the district website. (If you have previously filled out a Google Form on the parent page, this is a new form for this new software we are utilizing.) 

Additionally, you will be receiving a text message that you can either opt in or opt out from. If you do not receive the text and wish to opt in you can text the word 'YES' to the number 87569 from your device. (Please note that message and data rates may apply according to your plan.)
