Hertfordshire County Council’s School Closure Notification system
In the event of severe weather, a public emergency or unforeseen circumstances, it may be necessary for a school to close or partially close. Hertfordshire County Council has changed their School Closure Notification system.
In order to ensure parents and guardians are informed as quickly as possible of anything that may have an impact on a normal school day, this new notification system has been put in place to enable messages from schools to be sent immediately via text message and email.
Parents must sign up to the new system in order to access the immediate updates. Please click on the following link and then click on ‘sign up’ in the top right corner: member.everbridge.net/index/892807736725489
Please take 5 minutes to register your details for any Hertfordshire school your child attends so that you can receive immediate information and updates.
Each contact within the system can have 2 devices added for each communication type if they wish to – this means that in addition to adding your own mobile number and email address, you could include the mobile number and email address of a partner or a grandparent in your registration process. They too would then receive any messages in relation to the school’s closure.
If you have children at more than one school you can register for those schools too in a single registration process by selecting all schools at which you have children. Once signed up you will receive messages relating to the status of your child’s school
