AUTOMATED ALERTS

Mesquite ISD uses a service called SchoolMessenger (or Skylert) to send automated phone calls, text messages and emails to parents and guardians about school-related safety, events, reminders, absences, tardies, etc.

If you are receiving Mesquite ISD messages in error and/or would like to have your phone number or email address removed from our notification system, please contact Laura Jobe at ljobe@mesquiteisd.org or 972-882-7406.

 

Manage Your Notification Preferences

If you are the parent or guardian of a Mesquite ISD student, you may select how you would like to receive school-related notifications by setting your preferences in Family Access. You may select whether you want to be notified by phone (and at which phone number), by text or by email for each type of alert (emergency, general, absence, tardy and food account balances).

 

Opt In to Receive Text Messages from Mesquite ISD

To receive text message alerts about school safety, weather closings, events and more on your mobile phone, you must opt in for this service. Simply text “Y” or “Yes” to Mesquite ISD’s short code number, 67587. You can OPT OUT of these messages at any time by replying to one of our messages with the word “Stop.”

IMPORTANT:  Your mobile phone number must be part of your student’s contact information on file with the school in order to receive alerts. To add your mobile number to your student’s information, contact the school or add the number online through Family Access.
