Dear Parent or Guardian –
You are receiving this Email from Iron County School District because you are currently assigned as a parent, legal guardian, or custodian of one or more students within the district.
This is to inform you that the school district is currently implementing a new Parent/Guardian Notification system.  The product selected by the district isSchoolMessenger.  This system will make it possible for schools to send emergency information, transmit secure student report cards, and provide prompt/daily attendance reports.  Notifications will also be available in multiple languages to support our growing and diverse community.
The Notification System will be fully enabled as of Monday January 5, 2015.  Prior to that date, it will be necessary for all parents/guardians to take a few minutes to update your Parent profile in PowerSchool.  You will have the option of selecting your preferred contact method (Phone, SMS Text, or Email), and selecting or de-selecting the types of notifications to receive.
District and school websites will provide detailed instructions with links for updating your Parent Notification profile (available December 19).  It is important for this to be completed before the [January 5, 2015] activation date as schools will be using this new system to Email report cards starting mid-January.
If you have any questions or encounter any problems, please contact your school and they can assist you in getting this completed.  **Please Note:  Some parents may not (yet) have a Parent account setup in PowerSchool.  This must be created before you are able to activate your Parent Notification settings.  For those without an existing PowerSchool Parent account, our webpage will also include information for contacting the school to create your initial Parent account.
We are excited to be introducing this new Parent Notification system and know it will greatly enhance communication between schools and parents.
Best Regards,
Troy Lunt
Iron County School District Technology
