The Chillicothe R-II School District will be transitioning from Textcaster to Code Red to quickly notify patrons of emergency and general information.
This information will be shared through text messages, emails, and phone calls. In addition, the district will continue to use Facebook, Twitter, and local media to share updates with the community.
Code Red was purchased with funds provided by the Livingston County Commission which allocated Federal CARES Act funds to projects throughout Livingston County.
Instructions to set up Code Red alerts:
If you were a previous follower of Textcaster, you will receive an email on Tuesday, January 12, to begin the free subscription to Code Red.

The old Textcaster system has been retired and the Chillicothe School District looks forward to utilizing this new technology to share important information.
