At the Green Bay Area Public School District (GBAPS) student safety is our highest priority. The District has a comprehensive crisis plan and District administrators coordinate closely with emergency management officials and law enforcement to monitor and update plans on a regular basis.
In addition, schools have well-established security measures to ensure the well-being of students and staff. These include: visitor check-in procedures, locked doors after the start of the day, surveillance cameras, and all sites have school resource officer support.
How can I as a parent or guardian be assured I receive the most up-to-date information from my child’s school?
To ensure every parent has the most accurate contact information in an emergency situation, parent must keep contact information up-to-date in Infinite Campus. (If your phone number or address has changed, please contact the school secretary.)
How does the District communicate with parents and guardians in emergency situations?
The District contracts with School Messenger for its parent notification system, which enables the District to send bulk emails, automated phone calls and text messages to parents, guardians and other adults that are identified as emergency contacts. The District only uses text messaging
in limited circumstances such as emergency situations, school closures/delays, and bus accidents/delays.
How do I receive text messages?
To receive text messages, text “opt-in” or “subscribe” to 67587. If in the future you do not receive a text message, but would like to receive texts, please contact the Help Desk at 920-448-2148
to verify the District has the cell phone number in Infinite Campus. The Help Desk is available Monday -Thursday from 6:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and on Friday from 6:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. More information regarding text messages
