We ask that you supply at least a single point of contact – an e-mail address or a phone number. If you choose to supply multiple points of contact, it greatly increases our chances of reaching you in the event of an emergency. Please do not supply a text-messaging number if your carrier is not listed on the menu. NY-Alert is working hard to expand its services to other carriers and we will have regular updates to the system.

Messaging and/or data charges from your carrier may apply to these messages.


Parents may receive New York Alert messages through the student sign up. If you are a parent or family member and would like to receive the alerts, have your student add your cell and/or e-mail information to his or her account.
