Parents

Communication

 

In an effort to get information to our families in a timely fashion, we use several modes and methods of communication.

We realize that communication can be complex and it is sometimes difficult to be on top of all the schedule quirks that happen in the daily life of a high school student. In order to help manage those essential communications, we would like to ensure that we have the following information from each parent or guardian:

  • A phone number which is usually answered and/or  which has voicemail that is frequently checked
  • An email address which is checked daily or frequently
  • A phone number which accepts text messages

Please make every effort to provide the school with current and accurate phone information any time there is a change to ensure that you do not miss important information. If you have changes, please call the front office at 947-0313 and your information will be updated.

There are several ways John Bapst communicates with families and students, and which help us relay information in different ways.

SchoolReach parent/student contact system - event cancellations and special announcement broadcast system that enables school personnel to notify all households and parents by phone within minutes of a cancellation, unplanned event, or emergency that causes early dismissal or late start by phone, SMS (text messages), and email. The service may also be used from time-to-time to communicate general announcements or reminders.

Alerts are accessible at johnbapst.org and are sent via phone, email, and/or text message.

There is a SchoolReach App which allows parents to control how and what information they receive.

John Bapst also utilizes the following methods of communication:

The Round Table is John Bapst’s alumni magazine, which is sent to all school alumni, as well as current families. It features stories about alumni and often highlights the activities and events which are happening at the school. To request a copy, please contact the Development Office.

Many news items are published online in the The Bangor Daily News community section which is utilized for event announcements and academic honors information. Publication in the physical paper is never guaranteed, however information and events relavant to the community at large are submitted to the community calendar and for general publication.

Constant Contact email service is used by the school for non-emergency informaion including e-newsletters, invitations, and event announcements. If you wish to ensure that you recieve them, or if you have unsubscribed and wish to resubscribe, please visit the sign-up site directly.
