How to set up Skylert notifications in Skyward Family Access
Skylert is the district's automated notification system that provides emergency alerts, attendance notifications and other informational alerts via phone call, e-mail, and/or SMS (text message). Parents/guardians have some control over how to receive these messages.
Sign into Family Access and along the left side click on Skylert. You are seeing the contact information for the login account that you are using. Typically the account that both parents use is the father's account. If there is a work and cell phone number listed in the upper section (my Skyward contact info) those are the numbers that we have listed in our database for you. You have the availability to adjust these phone numbers. Additionally, you have the capability to add additional contact information in the section below (additional contact info for family).
- Emergency notifications are only used for snow closures, early dismissals, or an emergency situation where student safety could be at risk.
- Attendance notifications are sent when your child has been marked absent from school.
- General notifications are those related to school events, food service outstanding balances or other important items.
