SchoolConnects Messaging System

We are pleased to announce that we will now use SchoolConnects to manage important mass voice messages, mass email messages and mass text messages to parents regarding our schools and our students.

It is important that you provide to and notify your school office of any changes in your:

  • home phone number
  • cellphone numbers
  • alternate/work phone numbers, or
  • email address

For each cellphone on which you want to receive text messages:
     1) the cellphone number must first be in our student information system, and
     2) you must use it to text the message JOIN (in the text message box) to the number 56360 (in the phone number box).

Please be sure your school office has your cell phone number/s in our system before you attempt to sign up for text messages.

Would you like to get text messages on your cell phone from your school and the district?
Use the cell phone/s for which you want texts.

We FIRST must have those cell phone number/s in our school database for this to work.

Then text:  JOIN to 56360.
You must also have allowed your cellular plan (usually at sign up) to

let you subscribe to short code services.

Voicemail Messages
will be used for important information like school closings and other issues where we want to notify you of an issue immediately. In most cases, the message system will stop calling you when it successfully delivers the message (someone answers the call or it is recorded on a voicemail system). For truly urgent or emergency situations, the system will call every number (all home phones, cell phones, work phones) that we have in the system for you (this includes school closings). Duplicate numbers are called only once. These urgent messages are also sent as emails and texts (for those who have opted in).

Email messages will be used for more routine correspondence such as principal and teacher updates, reminders of upcoming deadlines and events, etc.

Text messages are very brief messages where your immediate attention is required, and will sometimes contain a link directing you to a webpage with more detail. (If you don't opt in for text messages, you will still get those important messages via voice and email.)

We are committed to keeping you informed while respecting your time and your personal communication resources. Please contact your school office if you need to update your contact information.
