DCS Email Sign-ups
All of our buildings and many classes have SchoolPost email lists to which families can subscribe. These small-group lists share information such as upcoming events, class reminders, and requests for volunteers. Sign up by clicking on the SchoolPost icon on the right hand side of any school page for that building's customized list. Scroll down to select any and all groups/classes/building messages you wish to receive. If you change your email address, you will need to re-subscribe.
Troubleshooting SchoolPost issues:
- If you flag a message from SchoolPost as spam (intentionally or unintentionally) and receive a message to that effect when trying to update your subscriptions or re-subscribe, email your info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- There is an Unsubscribe button at the bottom of every email that comes from SchoolPost. That will unsubscribe you from every list that message was sent to. The best way to manage your subscriptions (to unsubscribe from some and not all) is to use the Manage My Subscriptions link at the bottom of every SchoolPost email.
The district uses Blackboard Connect to send out urgent messages to all currently enrolled families and staff. These types of messages include items such as weather closing notifications, busing changes, administrative messages to the entire district, and district news. This is also the service that makes automated phone calls to families. If you are not receiving either of these types of messages, please do two things:
- Check with your building secretary to ensure your contact information in PowerSchool is accurate.
- If your contact info is accurate, contact our office to see if you accidentally unsubscribed from that mailing list and we can put you back on it. We will need to know your primary email in order to look you up.
