    Communications to Families:  SchoolMessenger System

    The District uses SchoolMessenger to very quickly place a phone call and/or email to all families and staff. If there is an issue that will impact the start of the school day, we will send a robo-call to all families at around 6 a.m. In order for this system to work best, please keep your contact information up-to-date. You can see how to update your information by clicking on the "Setting Your Preferences" link on the left. If you have any problems updating your information, you can contact your child's school.
