Blackboard Connect Notification Service

Keeping parents, staff members, and community leaders informed is a top priority of the Freeport Area School District.  That’s why the District has adopted an automated notification service, Blackboard Connect.


Blackboard Connect will be used to disseminate information in the event of an emergency, and the system will be an important tool in the District's efforts to improve communication as well.  Messages regarding school delays and cancellations, after-school events, extracurricular activities, information from school principals, and other school-related information can now be shared via the Blackboard Connect system. 

When a call is initiated by the District: 

•  Caller ID will display the school's main number when general announcements are delivered. 
•  Caller ID will display 411 if the message is a dire emergency. 
•  Messages will be left on answering machines and voicemail. 

If you would like to have your phone number added to the District's Blackboard Connect system, or if you have any questions about the system, please contact the District's School & Student Events Coordinator at (724) 295-5143, ext. 1260.
