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.
