ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL – St. Lucie Public Schools (SLPS) just announced yet another enhancement to the See Something, Say Something safety and security measures. SLPS has added an emergency alert button to the St. Lucie Public Schools app. The app is FREE for everyone and is available in your favorite app store. The added feature allows users to submit anonymous tips to school and district officials anytime, anywhere.

 

The new app feature comes on the heels of a comprehensive review of security and safety measures on school campuses.  “The ability to include mass texting software support for instantly relaying information to authorities is valuable to the overall safety of students and staff.  Our Board remains committed to the continued security enhancements of our schools,” said Superintendent E. Wayne Gent.

 

To keep parents and guardians informed, SLPS will continue to use the School Messenger robo-call system as a means of communicating via phone calls, emails, and text messages to mobile devices.  To support timely and accurate reporting, the District encourages parents and guardians to make sure their contact information is up-to-date.  If families have had a phone number or address change or are not receiving calls from their child’s school or the District, contact the school’s data specialist to make changes or make changes directly by logging into the Skylert parent portal.
