In case of Emergency, OCPS will communicate with Parents and Staff through one or all of these channels:

•OCPS Connect Orange*
•District and/or School Website
•Social Media (Facebook, Twitter)
•Local Media Outlets (Radio or TV)

Parents are notified of delayed dismissals when signed up for the Connect Orange automated phone system. Sometimes the rest of the day's bus schedule is impacted after a delay.

Please ensure the correct telephone number is listed on school records to ensure you receive Connect Orange messages. Contact your child's school to ensure telephone numbers are valid.

NOTE: Calls are mass notifications that do not include any individual identifying information.

*Sign Up for Connect Orange at your child's school - Keep your telephone number current
