Just a reminder...We continue to test and work with a new system to deliver mass text messages and audio calls. Depending on your cellular company provider, messages might mistakenly begin playing during your voicemail greeting. (Meaning, there are instances when the system believes an actual person has answered rather than an automated voice message and begins delivery.)  

Because of this circumstance, when the call goes to voicemail and to ensure delivery, our audio messages are looped. If you are unable to answer and listen immediately, our call will play twice (loop) to your voicemail. Please continue to listen, and the message will restart. You may hang up at any time. Please remember, building and district calls will send from (937) 884-7900. If you miss the call, please visit our website. We typically will have tried to replicate messages in our social media feeds.  (Please Note:  At this time, there will be no tone, chime, or automated introduction to our audio calls. The recorded message from our staff member will begin immediately.)  

We are experiencing successful delivery of mass text messages. Again, please remember these messages will send from a five-digit number.  (Most recently, you should have received a text message regarding donations for hurricane victims. If not, please contact the appropriate school office to ensure we have the appropriate telephone and cellular contacts.)  

Finally, we are experimenting with "push notifications" through our mobile application. If you haven't already done so, please consider downloading the Android or Apple version of the school district application to stay up-to-date on our most recent news.

Thank you for your patience and continued support of Milton-Union Schools!
