ONECALLNOW: The purpose of the OneCallNow message system is to send you important Strafford School information via phone. This system is designed to send our message to all households/cell phones simultaneously and leave a message if there is no answer. The system will retry to contact you four times. The OneCallNow message will display the 664-2842 phone number on your caller id. Please listen to the entire message when you receive a call and refrain from calling the school first. If after you have listened to the message and still have a question, please give us a call.
TICK TOCK: Please remember to set your clocks ahead one hour Sunday morning for Daylight Savings Time.
