Up-to-Date Contact Information Vital in an Emergency
Posted on 01/28/2019
Keep up-to-date emergency contact information on file.

All families are encouraged to update their emergency contact information on file at their child’s school if they or other emergency contacts have moved or changed phone numbers or email addresses since August 2018.

In an emergency, the San Bernardino City Unified School District (SBCUSD) makes every effort to contact families as quickly as possible using the contact information on file. When contact information is out of date, parents and guardians may not receive important communications.

In a major effort to improve communication with families, SBCUSD has expanded its communication tools to include phones, text messages, email, and a free mobile app.

The official SBCUSD mobile app is customizable so users receive notifications from the schools that matter to them, as well as access general information about SBCUSD and view its social media accounts. Anyone with a smart phone can download the free app by searching for “San Bernardino City USD” in the Google Play or App Store.

Anyone who prefers to receive text message alerts may sign up with SBCUSD’s partner SchoolMessenger by texting “Yes” without the quotation marks to 67587. Only cell phone numbers on file with a child’s school will receive emergency text messages, even if the number has been signed up with SchoolMessenger, so it is important to make sure your child’s school has current phone numbers on file. Users may opt out of receiving text messages at any time.
