In addition, we also can relay information by texting through our Procare software program, but we cannot access this program when we are not at Pleasant Park. So we cannot contact you from our homes in case of emergency closings. In addition, that program only allows us to send one text message to one number.  That is why you must sign up through REMIND 101. 

 

However, all of the texting services will not work if you get a new phone number or you change your carrier and you do not notify us of these changes or re-register with REMIND 101.

 

 EMERGENCY CLOSINGS

Please remember that Pleasant Park may close if Ball/Chatham schools close because of severe weather.  However, if the Ball/Chatham Schools are previously scheduled to be closed for some reason, such as Thanksgiving break or Christmas Break, and the weather is severe, Pleasant Park may have to close as well.   We will send out a text through remind 101 for emergency situations.  In all cases of severe weather, you will always have to check News Channel 20 or the News Channel 20 Website for possible closings.  If in doubt, you may always call the center to double check. 

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!
