Important information distributed through Bay District Schools IRIS Alerts

By  | 

BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - After last week's bomb threat made to Arnold High School, Bay District Schools officials realized there were 500 unusable numbers in the school system's IRIS Alert notification system.

District leaders want to urge parents to make sure their address and phone numbers are up to date.

Bay District Schools uses IRIS Alerts to send out important information to parents via email, text, and phone calls.

You can set up your information for alerts through the Parent Portal on the Bay District Schools website.

"Some people are not tech-savvy. They are afraid of this. They're nervous about how to do it. Our parent liaisons at every school will walk people through it," Sharon Michalik, Director of Communications for Bay District Schools said. "If you need to come up to the school and somebody needs to sit beside you and do this, we're all about it."

The school system along with Panhandle Crimestoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the threat against Arnold High School last week.
