What's New at the SCCOE

  Make sure you are signed up for emergency messages  

The SCCOE is augmenting its internal communications to ensure all employees can be contacted via text message in the event of an emergency. Please add your cell phone number to our database so you can receive information and instructions during an emergency situation. Our existing Human Resources database (QSS) doesn’t specifically identify phone numbers as cell or landlines, which is why each employee needs to add it to receive emergency notifications.

It only takes a minute, so don’t miss out on these crucial messages!
