Communication Preferences

We pride ourselves in maintaining open lines of communication with our Galion students, families and community. In order to do this, we are heavily dependent on the contact information provided to us by our families. We use Final Forms to gather phone numbers and emails addresses.  We encourage families to update the Contact Form within Final Forms as soon as possible when there are changes.

Galion City Schools uses the SchoolMessenger notification system and Remind for direct phone, text, and email communications to keep families informed of events, closures, delays, emergencies and student absences. These  systems allows us to ensure all families receive important information within just minutes. While we hope you find these services valuable, we wish to respect family preferences regarding theses communication channels and fulfill our intent to comply with FCC telecommunications regulations.
