You spoke…we listened. Many parents have told us that they prefer to receive school notifications via text message or email instead of automated phone calls. So, this school year, the district is relying less on “robo calls” to relay certain information and more on text/email through service provider SchoolMessenger. Parents: The district must have your correct cell phone number and/or email address on file in order for you to receive notifications. Additionally, to receive texts, you must take the extra step of opting-in.
