You can choose your most convenient option to receive notifications: phone call, email, text message, or mobile app! We utilize the SchoolMessenger notification system district-wide to deliver emergency calls and important information (i.e. student attendance alerts, school/district announcements) to each parent/guardian. SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone. Each method provides the option to opt out of non-emergency messages at any time.
