The district is currently using the School Messenger system to keep our district families up to date on important announcements such as school closings and information about school events. All students enrolled in the district will receive the phone calls for school closing and other emergency announcements unless they specifically send a request to the district to have their phone numbers barred from use by the system. They will also receive emails to the parent(s) email accounts if that information has been provided on the emergency contact forms.
