Our school district uses the SchoolMessenger Notification System to provide timely communication to students and staff members on matters such as enrollment, general interest activities and school emergencies.

In order to enhance our ability to accurately deliver that information we kindly request that you create your own contact preference profile using SchoolMessenger’s web site. This allows you to control the ways in which you prefer to be contacted. It also works like a mailbox, giving you a place to review messages you may have missed.
