Connect5 Notification System


Contact Information for the AlertNow System is obtained from our student information system.
It is critical that parents maintain current information in our student information system. If your contact information changes, please download the Update Household Information Form and return the completed form to your child’s school.

How is AlertNow used?
AlertNow allows the Foster school district to send important information quickly – not only to parents, but to staff as well – via phone and/or e-mail about emergency situations and school delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. In addition to notifying parents about school closings or delays, AlertNow also allows the school district to contact parents about important school information and events, testing schedules, report card distribution, open houses, delayed buses, field trips, and more.

What do I do if I am not receiving AlertNow messages?
One of the reasons you may not receive a phone call is that this particular information may be outdated. If you are not receiving AlertNow messages please e-mail Lynn Richardson at
