New Dialing Procedures When Calling LCSD Schools
Thursday, January 19, 2017
Beginning February 11, parents and community members trying to call a Liverpool Central School District building or employee must dial 10 digits (the 315 area code plus the seven-digit telephone number). If you do not use this new dialing procedure, your call will not be completed and a recording will instruct you to hang up and try again. In addition, any pre-programmed local telephone numbers in your phone’s contact list also must include the area code.
In 2015, the New York State Public Service Commission ordered the activation of a second area code for the Central New York region, triggering the need for the new dialing procedures. The second area code (680) may be assigned to new telephone numbers beginning March 11. It was added so that the commission could ensure a continuing supply of phone numbers in the area.
