RSU #57 sends alerts to parents, students, and staff for many situations such as: events, special days, approaching days off, and cancellations due to weather. There are multiple ways to receive alerts. This page explains the different formats so that you can choose what is right for you.

Telephone texts and calls

The RSU 57 alert system places phone call and text announcements to phone numbers in Synergy/ParentVUE. The phone numbers entered into our student information system for parents/guardians and staff are pulled into alerts. When a phone message is sent, it places both a call and a text.

Alerts can be sent to two parents/guardians.

Each parent/guardian can have 2 phone numbers in the system.

You must be a parent/guardian or staff to receive a call or text because contact information is pulled from our student information system.

Messaging rates do apply. If you do not want to be charged, please remove your numbers from alerts.

One alert will both call AND text. There is no way to choose a call OR text.

RSU #57 App

The RSU #57 web page is accompanied by an app. The app has many features that people have said to be very useful. When you set up the app, you are able to specify your notification preferences. The app is available on the Apple App store and Google Play. Search RSU57, Maine.

The app is a great option if you would like to have only one subtle alert. The alert comes in as a phone notification in the same way that you get notifications from other apps.

Anyone can receive alerts through the app. You do not have to be in our student information system.

You must have a smartphone to use the app.


Some alerts are accompanied by an email version of the information. Like phone numbers, email addresses are pulled from Synergy for parents/guardians, students, and staff.

Not all alerts are accompanied by an email.

Staff must use their work email.

Staff can not opt out of the email alerts.


How do I make changes in how I receive alerts?  For app alerts, you control the app. You must choose your preferences for notifications.
