Communications Tools

Here are some ways to communicate with your families.

Synergy

Message families through their ParentVUE app in multiple languages. When the message is sent, it goes to the app and to the email on file for the parent/guardian.

Phone Calls

Call families by using an app that may either block Caller ID or use a number that does not appear as a school district number.
