When severe weather warnings are received Craigellachie Primary School will endeavour to keep the system updated. It is an enhancement to the present service and does not replace existing methods of giving out information, such as radio broadcasts.
(Note that this is a 0870 service and charges are slightly higher than normal. However, there is no queuing and an adverse weather call should last less than 1 minute.
This service also offers the following facilities:
Up to 10 general school (non-urgent) announcements (option 3 below)
Parents can leave non-urgent messages, which are forwarded to the school email address in due course (option 2 below)
