||The Call ID will display 225-924-1054, which is the main |
number for Our Lady of Mercy School.
|Live Answers||There is a short pause at the beginning of the message, |
usually just a few seconds. Answer your phone as you normally would “Hello” and hold for the message to begin. Multiple “Hello’s” will delay message. Inform all family members of this process who may answer your phone.
|Answering Machines||The system will detect that your machine has answered and will play the recording to your machine. The maximum numbers of rings before hang up is 5. Make sure your machine answers after 4 rings or you may miss the message.|
|Morning & Day Calls||In the event a cancellation decision is made the night |
before, or in the early morning hours, the broadcast message will be sent only to home phone numbers. In the event a cancellation decision is made mid-day, the broadcast message will be sent to home and cellular numbers. General announcements would be sent only to home numbers.
|Message Repeat||At the end of the message you will be prompted |
to ‘press one’ to hear the message again. This is very effective when a child answers the phone and hands it to a parent, who can then ‘Repeat’ the message in its entirety.
