The following information applies to those individuals who are not currently receiving alert calls/texts/emails regarding school closures/delays or other announcements.  This includes, but is not limited to, community members, vendors, and the like.

Our school district has contracted with West Corporation, provider of SchoolMessenger Solutions such as Communicate to provide timely communication to students and staff members on matters such as admissions, general interest activities and campus emergencies.

In order to enhance our ability to accurately deliver that information we kindly request that you create your own contact preference profile using our school district’s subscriber website for Communicate. 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.
