Alert Notification

Milford School District utilizes an automated calling system to facilitate communication with families. The system enables the district to alert families when school is cancelled, give updates about important events, and deliver communication during emergencies. 

Phone Calls:

  • Phone calls are made to the phone number listed as primary in the eSchool database at each school.
  • To update a phone number and/or change the primary number, please contact the school's main office staff
  • Once an automated call is answered, it will start again if background noise is detected.  For example, if a dog barks in the background of the listener's phone, then the call will start from the beginning.


  • Emails are often sent with an automated call.
  • Emails will include the same information in the automated call.
  • Email is sent to the primary email listed in the eSchool database at each school.
  • To update an email address and/or change the primary email address, please contact the school's main office staff.

Important Information about Blackboard Connect Notification System

It has been brought to the district’s attention that some parents are accidentally “opting out” of the notification system by pressing “1” at the end of the message.

If this is the case and you would like to have your phone number restored in the notification system, please call 1.855.502.7867 and follow the directions given.

Blackboard Connect also offers a “replay service” to hear a replay of any recent message that was sent to your phone number.  For this service, please call 1.855.473.7529.

During the school year, parents/guardians should update contact information and/or home phone number to the school if changes have been made.  This will allow for parents/guardians to receive notification services.
