Dear Parents/Guardians:

In an effort to better assist you in obtaining information regarding school closings, emergencies, etc., we will be partnering with the County of Giles and the Giles County Sheriff’s Office in the use of the CodeRed Alert System.  The CodeRed Alert System provides the school system, as well as County officials, the ability to share information through a pre- recorded telephone message to targeted areas or to the entire county.  Please do not rely on this as your #1 source of information, because there could be technical difficulties which could allow this not to work.

If you are interested in subscribing to this system, you will need to do the following:

(1)     From an internet browser, log into the School Board Office website (, any school website, or the County of Giles website (
(2)     Click on the CodeRed link.
(3)     Proceed to provide your information (name, address, primary and secondary phone number)
(4)     Click on the Continue button to verify that the information you entered is correct.
(5)     If you do not have internet access, you may stop by the Giles County Sheriff’s Office 911 Center, the County Administration Office, or the Giles County School Board Office to pick up a data form in order to fill it out.

Please be reminded that we will continue to use the other methods of notification that we have utilized in the past, including the following:
