Lake County Schools is closely monitoring the latest tracks of Tropical Storm Isaac as predicted storm conditions for Central Florida are continually changing.
Working with the Lake County Department of Public Safety, Emergency Management Division, District officials are receiving up-to-date information regarding Tropical Storm Isaac. During the weekend, the District will continue to evaluate information received through the Lake County Emergency Operations Center. Parents are encouraged to stay tuned to local media reports regarding school status. In addition, Lake County Schools will use a variety of communication tools to disseminate information, including:
· SCHOOLMESSENGER: The SchoolMessenger Notification System provides timely communication to parents and staff members through automated telephone messages. In order to enhance a school’s and District’s ability to accurately deliver that information, parents can create and update their own contact preference profile using SchoolMessenger’s Contact Manager website. Contact Manager allows parents to control the ways in which they prefer to be contacted. It also works like a mailbox, giving parents a place to review messages they may have missed. In order to utilize this feature follow the steps at www.lake.k12.fl.us/contactmanager to create an account through the secure Contact Manager website provided by SchoolMessenger.
