Honeywell Instant Alert™ Information and Help
Keeping parents informed and involved helps to assure student safety and improve student success. With today’s on-the-go lifestyles, it has become more difficult for schools to reach families quickly and effectively. This is why Newmark Schools have decided to implement a new system called Instant Alert™ for Schools.
Instant Alert for Schools is an essential tool for notification and communication. Within minutes of an emergency, we can use Instant Alert to deliver a single, clear message to you by telephone, cell phone, e-mail, pager, or PDA in any combination. The system can also be used to notify you of a school closing due to inclement weather. It’s an equally effective way to keep you informed of everyday activities, such as event times and locations as well as schedule changes.
The system is Internet based, allowing each family to maintain a secure, password protected online profile. Use this instruction sheet for accessing the system and creating your profile. You can log into your profile at any time to update your contact information. Maintaining the accuracy of your profile will increase the ability of the school to keep you informed.
Your online profile will enable you to:
- Input your personal contact information
- Select the type of devices you would like to use when receiving school information (cell phone call, email, text message, etc.)
- Send yourself a test text message to make sure your text messaging contact information is entered correctly
- Add contact information of other caretakers of your children, such as a grandparent or neighbor
In addition to receiving communication alerts on your designated contact devices, the alert messages will also appear in your online profile. You can use this feature to read any alerts that may have been erased or deleted accidentally on your other contact devices.
Parents Choose How to Be Contacted
Parents can customize how they want to receive messages and where they want them sent. Send a message to your home phone or e-mail. It’s your decision about where and how messages are delivered.
The system is ready for you at https://instantalert.honeywell.com. Please follow the instructions on our online instruction sheet to set up your account. We encourage all of you to take advantage of this opportunity, as we will be utilizing this system for most of our school-to-home communication.
If you need assistance with your profile, please send an email to InstantAlertHelp@Honeywell.com. If you do not have access to a computer, or wish to speak with our staff, please feel to call the main office at 908-753-0330.
