NEW: The LSTA Rolls Out Alert Notification System for Parents

In a continued effort to assist parents in Lakewood, the LSTA this evening has rolled out yet another feature – alert notifications.

“The LSTA is stepping up our efforts, and we’re happy to offer Lakewood families urgent notifications,” LSTA’s Rabbi Avraham Krawiec tells TLS. “We thank The Lakewood Scoop for their tremendous assistance in this endeavor,” Rabbi Krawiec said.

The notification system gives parents the option to choose regarding which schools they would like to receive alerts for, by clicking on the schools in the list.

Parents can choose whether to receive the alerts via Text or Email.

Last year, the LSTA rolled out a safety hotline, as well as a number parent can text or call with their concerns the number is 732-707-7287. Parents can also email with their concerns.

  • MRS. Y. says:

    Great idea!
    Thank you soo much. Just wondering Why aren’t ALL
    the schools on the list(s)
    (MY High school SON”S Yeshiva isn’t on there.
    & EVERY morning WE wait outside for a bus that’s NOT showing up 4 whatever reason.

  • Tracker says:

    Ty, LSTA. Now we need trackers on the bus that alert the parents where their buses are so we don’t have to freeze waiting for the bus.

  • ER says:

    The article quotes Rabbi Krawiec as saying “..we are happy to offer Lakewood families urgent notifications”. When would notifications go out – what would be considered “urgent” notifications? Thanks.

  • Daniel Klein says:

    May I suggest that the bus companies implement a GPS tracking system for parents to see when the bus is coming?
    Such a solution would save tens of thousands of hours for Lakewood parents.
    It may cost a few dollars but I am sure the parents would be happy to pick up the cost. I would.

    My son’s Mesivta is not on the list, but we have been getting alerts from the yeshiva that bus route number.. does not have a driver. At least the alerts come at 7:00, and not after the child has already been in the cold for 20 minutes. This also leaves the parent a few more minutes to plan and be home to get the rest of the school children ready, and also be on time for work.
    In the past, I have gotten a phone call from my boys that their bus didn’t come, when it was already 9:00. I’m already at my desk-Fortunately, we had contingency plans, but it would be much better to find out at 7:00
