Elmont School District stays connected with new technology

Elmont School District stays connected with new technology

If you have a child in one of Elmont’s Elementary Schools don’t be surprised if the next time you pick up the phone you hear Superintendent Al Harper on the other end with a message about important school information. Or it could be your child’s principal with information about upcoming events. It’s all part of the district’s new automated communications system – Connect-ED.

The Connect-ED service can make up to 30,000 phone calls in a few minutes. It is a valuable tool in notifying parents and staff about emergencies and school closings and can be tailored for specific school messages as well.

“We’ll be able to deliver important school information in a timely manner. The system also supports our ability to reach you immediately in the event of an emergency,” said Superintendent Al Harper in his first phone message to parents earlier this school year.

Be sure your child’s school has the most recent phone number on file so that you can stay connected.

The mission of the Elmont Union Free School District is to “reach and teach for excellence,” which means continually improving instruction and increasing student achievement. Dedication to this goal is what has earned Elmont New York state recognition for its “High Performing/Gap Closing Schools,” and as a state “model for school success.” In partnership with the community, the district holds its students to the highest standards while maintaining one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in Nassau County.
