Rapid Notifications

  • We use our rapid notification phone and text system to alert parents when there is an alert, emergency or inclement weather delay, closure or early dismissal. Please notify the main office at your child's school if your phone number or address changes so we can update our system. 

    We apologize if you are receiving phone calls and text notifications from Reading School District but do not have a child attending the district. To have your phone number removed, call Kristin Boyd Edwards at 484-258-7031. Leave your name and phone number, and we'll remove the number from our rapid notification database. Please note, it typically takes 24-48 hours for the number to cycle out of the system.
