Emergency Alert System

Blackboard Connect allows us to notify parents, students, and faculty of any emergency on campus or inform you of a school closure due to weather or power outage in an efficient and timely manner. 

Madeira does not submit school closure or delay information to local television and radio stations. We feel that we can communicate with our student body in a more meaningful and direct way via this emergency alert system.

Please note:

  • When you get to the Blackboard Connect webpage click "Sign me up!" to start the process.
  • You need to create a login and password (it is NOT automatically the same as your My Backpack login)
  • You must check the "Subscribe" box to activate your preferences.

Please enroll in the system today. It takes just a few minutes, and you’ll be able to enter your preferences for communications (telephone, text, or email –or all three). If you have any questions, please contact the Communications Office at 703-556-8371.
