In the event of a significant emergency or dangerous situation involving an immediate threat to the health or safety of the Tufts community the university may use TuftsAlert to reach students, faculty, and staff. To communicate with parents, the university maintains a separate email list.
The parents email list is used to inform students’ families of time-sensitive safety and health information affecting Tufts University. When appropriate we will email subscribers about what we are doing to manage specific situations involving the safety and health of our community. Subscribers will also receive a test email twice a year, coinciding with the test of TuftsAlert, the university’s emergency alert system, at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. For more information see the Emergency Notification Policy.
