New emergency alert system for area schools

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Parents of LISD and Frenship students may soon find out about school emergencies quicker. Region 17 has partnered with a company called SchoolReach to provide schools with parental notification services. Now parents can receive timely, accurate information at a moment's notice.

"We really thought that, we know that school safety's huge but we also thought that communication with parents is critical for our schools and so far this is just a really, really easy way to accomplish that," says Region 17 Associate Executive Director Linda Roundtree.

All 20 counties in Region 17, which includes Lubbock, will have this new alert system.
