Blackboard Mass Notifications
Blackboard Mass Communication (BBComm) is a rapid notification system used to contact families in the Madison County School System via telephone, text, and email messages.
The district uses this system to communicate information related to districtwide events, including safety alerts, key school dates, and school closings due to inclement weather. Schools also may use the system to communicate information related to school events as well as automated attendance messages.
In order to receive messages, you need to be a parent/guardian of an enrolled student in the Madison County School System. Please keep your contact information up to date with your school.
Community members can sign up to receive notifications from specific schools and the district by completing the sign up form at this link.
