Information Regarding Alert Solutions

for parent notification of unplanned early dismissals


Interested in volunteering or being a chaperone for class trips?

On January 7, 2015, AVRSB revised its policy to ensure that all volunteers maintain up-to-date Criminal Records Checks and Chld Abuse Registry Searches.  This policy indicates that volunteers must complete these screening tools every three years.  If you plan on volunteering during the 2015-2016 school year and would like to start the process, you may find the forms and instructions under the Documents Tab above (Volunteer Application Form, Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry Search).

Extended Absences Policy – Non Medical
When students miss school time for non-medical reasons, teachers are obliged to supply curriculum based information/notes when possible. There is no requirement for teachers to supply work in advance of the absence.  Lessons missed will not be retaught and students are responsible for getting caught up with the missed information outside of scheduled class time.
Parents and students need to know that for non-medical based absences that assessments missed may be unrecoverable. The student will be awarded a grade of zero and there is no obligation for the teacher to supply make-up or alternative assessment.  It is the responsibility of the student to negotiate with the teacher as to how they will assess missed work.
"Approved by SAC" (Sepember 2016)

  • Important Information About School Cancellation/Urgent Notices from AVRSB

    The Annapolis Valley Regional School Board is now using AlertSolutions to send messages to parents/guardians about school cancellations or other urgent situations. This is the same system that many schools use to send information such as attendance and newsletter notices to parents/guardians by text, email and sometimes by phone.

    AVRSB will send early morning school cancellation messages (due to weather/road conditions, or power/water outage) by text and email using AlertSolutions. Unplanned early dismissal messages during the day will be sent by text, email and phone.

    Contact information you provided to the school on your child’s registration form will be used to send these messages. Parents/guardians can maintain their contact information and contact preferences using the PowerSchool Parent Portal or by contacting the school office directly.

    You may have subscribed to our Notify Me system in the past, in order to receive these kinds of messages by text or email. Where possible, AVRSB is taking steps to ensure parents/guardians do not receive duplicate cancellation/urgent messages from AlertSolutions and Notify Me. Notify Me will continue to be available so those who do not have contact information on file with a school—such as grandparents and childcare providers—can receive these messages. You can unsubscribe or subscribe to Notify Me any time at https://www.avrsb.ca/content/notify-me.
