ESD - Inspiring students to learn, lead and impact their community and the world

Enumclaw School District uses an interface called Skylert between Skyward, our student information system, and School Messenger, the primary app we use to bulk call (robocall), email, and text parents/guardians and district staff.  

Skylert settings (which are accessible within the Family Access module of Skyward) allow parents/guardians to control communication preferences (i.e. opt in or opt out) for phone numbers and email addresses where school related messages might be sent.   Below is a screenshot showing a matrix with the possible types of broadcasts across the top and contact numbers and email addresses down the side.

The SMS (text) option is enabled as a valid delivery method for General Broadcasts sent by School Messenger. With this change, the default Skylert behavior is to have the text message numbers for a student’s contacts opt in to receive General text messages when they are included in a broadcast. If parents and guardians find that they are receiving the same message in too many forms, they should login to Family Access and change the settings on the Skylert tab.
