Emergency Communication

In any emergency, it is important for everyone to rely on timely and accurate information directly from the school system and local and state officials. All official announcements regarding schools will be made through SchoolMessenger automated calls, emails or texts. Information will also be shared on Camden County Schools’ website and Facebook page, local radio stations KBAY 106.3 and WECC 89.3 and the Tribune and Georgian website. Rely on these sources for official updates regarding all weather decisions.

Keeping your information up to date is the best way to ensure you receive official messages. Ask friends and neighbors with students to be sure they are receiving our messages. If not, they can easily update their contact information in PowerSchool by logging into PowerSchool and choosing the Year Round Update option to enter current contact information.

Social Media Use Guidelines


Camden County Schools social media accounts are provided for the district and community by the Camden County Schools Central Administrative Offices. These pages are, and should be, updated frequently in order to exchange information with our community, celebrate the achievements of students/staff and communicate timely information.


Posting of comments on any Camden County Schools Social Media page is at the discretion of the page administrators. These guidelines are in place to protect the privacy and rights of Camden County Schools students and staff. Naming specific employees or students in a negative way will not be allowed. The page administrators will review postings to make sure they do not run afoul of the rules nor of the district’s guidelines regarding the use of technology.

We welcome your thoughts and comments and look forward to what you have to say.

• Easily identify students and/or staff in defamatory, abusive or generally negative terms.

• Do not show proper consideration for others’ privacy or are considered likely to offend or provoke others.
