Receive alerts from the City
Note: The City of Round Rock discontinued its use of Blackboard Connect in early 2014.
The City of Round Rock is pleased to announce the launch of Blackboard Connect, our new city-to-resident notification system.
With this service, city leaders can send personalized voice messages to residents and businesses within minutes with specific information about time-sensitive or common-interest issues such as emergencies and local community matters. The Connect service will be used to supplement our current communication plans and augment public safety/first responder services.
We know that your personal information is important, and rest assured that we will not share it with anyone. If you have NOT already received a test phone call from us, or you would like to provide additional contact information, click the Blackboard Connect image to sign up.
Are you registered with Blackboard Connect?
If your home or business phone is a published number, you should already be in our system. If you have an unpublished number or do not have a "land line" in your home or business, you can register your contact information by clicking the button above. You may also use this button if wish to opt out of notifications or if your primary number is already registered and you would like to add additional contact information (such as cell phone or email address). Adding additional contact information is recommended for those business owners who do not reside in the City or whose company headquarters are outside of Round Rock.
Once you register, make sure to take the final step of managing your subscriptions. So be sure to login to the portal, and look for the link in the welcome message on the left side of the screen that states: "You may Click Here to manage all of your contact information and subscription preferences." Then click on the subscription tab on the left side to the screen to choose how you want to receive Emergency and Outreach messages -- phone, email and/or text.
