Other Skylert/SchoolMessenger settings

Some additional settings in Skyward Family Access control the campus and district e-newsletters that go out through SchoolMessenger/Skylert. 

  • Click on the Sklyert tab on the bottom left corner of the screen. 
  • Your contact information for SchoolMessenger/Skylert will appear in the top of the page.  You can change/update as needed.
  • Make sure General News is checked for your email address so you receive campus/district e-news, transportation updates and schedules, and other important information.
  • At the bottom of the page, you can add additional phone numbers or email addresses for family members like grandparents who ARE NOT parent/guardians in Skyward.  This will allow them to also receive SchoolMessenger emails without being listed as the parent or guardian of your students.
  • Check whether you would like those additional email addresses to receive Emergency alerts (school safety, closures, bad weather days), Attendance notifications, and/or General News and Surveys.
  • Towards the bottom of the page, make sure your own cell phone number is listed to also receive text alerts, and add any other phone numbers needed for text messages.
  • Click Save when done.
