School Closing/Delay and Dissemination of Information
Due to weather and other factors school may be closed, delayed, or event information changed. It is important for parents to get the latest information during these situations.
The school uses the following means of disseminating information when appropriate:
School Reach Phone Service: Perry Central uses a phone service provided by School Reach. This service attempts to call the available numbers cataloged in our database (Harmony) to contact staff and guardians in case of a delay/closing/emergency. This service may also be used for more mundane information conveyance such as lunch account balances, attendance notices, sporting events, etc. Please make sure your home and cell phone are up-to-date in order to receive these messages.
Tips for successfully receiving messages:
Saying "Hello" when answering the automated service ensures a proper message delivery.
Some issues occur with extended answering machine greetings. Limit your greeting to 15 seconds for optimal performance.
Musical greetings drop automated calls often. Change greeting if calls do not come through correctly.
The maximum number of rings this service waits for is 5. Set answering machines to 4 rings for optimal performance.

If you have issues with this service please contact Lora Hubert or Seth Clark by email. If you would like to add or change phone numbers that receive calls (limit three per family) please contact the Elementary Office 812/843-5122 or the High School Office 812/843-5121.

If you are aware of approaching inclement weather, please watch or listen to the above stations for school closing information. Please note that we are the Perry Central Community School Corporation.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOLS, BUS DRIVERS OR OTHER SCHOOL PERSONNEL. Our lines are extremely busy as we call teachers, custodians, cooks, bus drivers, etc and people who are making daily deliveries (bread, milk, fuel) to let them know we are closed.
Parents should also make alternative plans for their children in case we should delay opening school for one or two hours on days when we have ice or snow or some other problem. Delays would also be announced on the above stations.
Should a delay be announced, please continue to listen to the above stations as the possibility exists that the decision could be changed to a closing instead of a delay.
