Communications Announcement - New e-mail system coming soon!

posted Oct 19, 2020, 2:43 PM by Athens Drive High School Band   [ updated Feb 5, 2021, 6:16 PM ]
We are planning to transition to a new e-mail system in the next few weeks and wanted to give you some advance notice. 

Why is this happening?
  • We currently use Yahoo! Group mail which has limited functionality, offers no support to clients, and is planning to phase out its services by the end of the year.
What does this mean to me?
  • At some point in the near future there will be an overlap of e-mail services, so for a short period you may receive the same e-mail content from both the “old Yahoo! system” & the “new iContact system”. 
  • This will give us the opportunity to test on a greater scale and give YOU the opportunity to check you are receiving mail from the new system. 
  • We will endeavor to send as few duplicate e-mails as possible.
  • You will be notified when this phase begins.

What Do I need To Do?

FOR CURRENT BAND MEMBER & FAMILIES - The hope is that current band members will not have to do anything.
  • All current members of the Marching Band & Class Band (and their families), who provided their email details when signing up for band, will be added to the new e-mail group.
  • Please note - after the launch, if the email you supplied on your sign up is not your preferred email, we can update this for you - just contact email@athensdriveband.com

  • One change we are implementing is that only current band students & families will be added to the new Band e-mail group.
  • If you are not a current member, you (hopefully!) will NOT receive e-mails from the new system. 
  • All alumni students and family members are welcome to join our Alumni e-mail Group.
How Do I Join the Alumni Mail Group?
  • If you are on our existing Yahoo! Alumni Mail List - you will automatically be added.
  • If you have entered details on our Alumni Database - you will automatically be added.
  • If neither of the last 2 points apply & you would like to be added - please complete the Alumni Database form :https://form.jotform.com/50866466871165
  • If you have any questions, please contact me at email@athensdriveband.com
Whilst we iron out any kinks - please know that all e-mails are added to the band’s webpage http://www.athensdriveband.com/home in the Announcement sections (Booster’s News & Director’s News).

Many thanks
