In an effort to eliminate over spending on notifications, Riverdale has consolidated to one database for a call system and text system. We noticed the call came from Little Rock, Arkansas. We are looking into changing the caller ID tag for you. What does this mean for you? What are your options? 1. If you want a phone call for delays and cancellations, you will also get a text. Conversely if you want a text, you will also get a call. 2. If you only got a text last year, we no longer have access to that database. If you want to receive text notifications and a phone call, please let us know by emailing Mr. DeMotte at email@example.com . 3. You can download the Riverdale app in your app store and receive push notifications for Riverdale, this will include delays and cancellations.
