Alerts from Canton Local School District
Keeping our families informed is a top priority at Canton Local School District. The district uses Blackboard Connect to inform parents and students of emergencies and other information via text message (SMS), email and phone. Parents can sign-up to receive many different types of alerts and can also choose how to receive those alerts. Blackboard will also allow you to unsubscribe from certain alerts if you no longer want to receive them.
Using Blackboard Connect
The Blackboard Connect icon will take you to a portal that will give you the option to manage the way you are contacted through our automated system for emergencies, inclement weather, and building/district news.
There is an option to add or change your current phone numbers, email addresses, and/or cell phone numbers in the system. Also, there is an option to pick and choose which way you want the system to communicate the message, including text messaging.
