School Messenger for Alerts…


Dear Parents/Guardians of Lakota Local Schools,

We believe it is important to communicate with our families.  One way we do that is with our instant message system. We have switched the provider of our instant alerts. We are using a company called School Messenger. They have many exciting features that were not available with our previous provider.

The phone numbers and emails that will be used initially are the contacts listed in our student information system. If you would like to be able to change how you are contacted we will need a current email address in our system. Please send your current email address using the link provided and we will enter that into our student information system. Once your address is in you will be able to go to infocenter.schoolmessenger.com and create an account that will allow you to add numbers and addresses to your profile. If you have any questions please contact your child’s school office.
