Blackboard Connect! -Alert System

  • SLSD utilizes the Blackboard Connect!® service for electronic communications.

    This system enables us to communicate with parents and staff regarding emergencies, school events and other important issues affecting you and our students.

    The system allows us to send personalized voice messages to each family or staff's home, work or cell phones, and also by e-mail. We will be able to reach everyone in the district within minutes. Based on the system’s proven track record, we know that this messaging service improves school and district-wide communication with parents and school system employees. We firmly believe that a more informed and involved parent leads to a higher achieving student.

    Please help us by ensuring we have your current phone numbers and e-mail addresses. The system will pull main contact phone numbers, e-mail addresses and emergency contact phone numbers from Sapphire, our Student Information System.  You can now manage your account by registering for a portal account. If you encounter ANY problems with the system, please contact your child's building secretary to report the issue and for assistance.

    Please use the links to the left for more detailed directions.

     ** Please Note: Use of this system is intended to improve communications with parents and staff members and Southern Lehigh School District will make every effort to resolve undelivered communications. Southern Lehigh School District cannot guarantee that every communication will be received through Blackboard Connect!. Users release the School District from any responsibility with respect to a resulting communication or failure of communication relating to Blackboard Connect!. In case of an emergency and a failure to communicate or a breakdown in communication, the School District cannot be held liable for any resulting harm or injury that might result to anyone who fails to receive the information.
