Change voice mail message

Please make sure phone messages reflect information about the district's school hours.      


Campus principals need to verify that campus voice mail messages are kept updated and reflect pertinent information for your campus.


BISD expects all staff with voice mail and e-mail to change their voice mail and out of office reply on e-mail when they are not going to be in the office/classroom. The district does not want people to leave a voice mail or e-mail to find out later that the person is out of the office/classroom for several days.
