The Shawnee Mission School District is changing its notification system. We are moving to a new comprehensive communication platform that will allow you to receive communication via phone calls, text-alerts, and e-mails about issues related your student’s academic experience and safety. Alerts may include: Emergency messages, school closings, early dismissals, attendance information, and announcements from your student’s school. The Shawnee Mission School District is working with SchoolMessenger to provide these quick alerts. To ensure you will continue to receive messages, your contact information will need to be up-to-date. Here is some information to make sure you are in contact: Parents If you are a parent in the Shawnee Mission School District, be sure to contact your student’s school and make sure your contacts (your home phone number, a cell phone number, and e-mail address) are correct and up-to-date. In the future, the Shawnee Mission School District will be connected to a new student information system, which will allow more options for you to manage your communication preferences. Patrons If you are not a parent of a current student, sign up for alerts here. This link will take you to an online form. Once it is filled out, you will be e-mailed a confirmation code to continue the sign-up. The process may take a few minutes.
