Get Updates through SchoolMessenger

DPS is starting to use a new system to alert families when there is an emergency at school. Starting mid-November, we will begin using SchoolMessenger to send emergency messages to parent and guardian contacts, as well as high school students who have signed up to receive them. These messages include text, email and phone communications related to school closures, early releases or late starts, as well as messages about lockdowns or lockouts.

Look for a welcome message from SchoolMessenger on Nov. 12, which will come as a text, phone call or email, based on your preferences in Infinite Campus (IC). 

Message Preferences 

Families will receive messages based on the preferences they set in Infinite Campus (IC), including contact method and language preferences. To adjust your preferences, log in to your Parent Portal or Student Portal account

Note: Schools will continue to use IC Messenger until DPS fully transitions to SchoolMessenger for school-based communications during a later phase.
