§ When receiving a SchoolReach call, answer
your phone as you normally would. Say "hello" once, saying multiple
"hellos" may delay the start of the message. Please note that there
is a short pause in the beginning of the call.
§ IMPORTANT: Set your answering machine to
answer in four rings or less to ensure best message
delivery. Note: Short, succinct answering machine greetings are best
for our machine detection and delivery process. Long answering machine
greetings, or greetings with pauses or gaps, may cause the SchoolReach message
to begin too soon.
§ To listen to a message again, wait for the
'press any key' prompt at the end of the message and after pressing a key
you'll hear the message again in its entirety.
§ A live or machine answer will complete the
notification cycle and cease any future calls for a particular message
broadcast.If the SchoolReach system encounters a busy, no answer or failed (bad
number or line) condition, the system will typically retry that number(s) twice
more in 15 minute increments.
§ Depending on how your school has structured
their calling lists, you may receive simultaneous calls on your home, cell
and/or work numbers.
