The Shawnee Mission School District has a comprehensive communication platform that allows parents to receive communication in a variety of ways: phone calls, text-alerts, and e-mails. Families can sign up to receive alerts in the manner that works for them.

Alerts may include: Emergency messages, school closings, early dismissals, attendance information, and announcements from a school.

To receive messages, parent/guardian contact information must be up-to-date in the Skyward student information system. Please contact the school office or update contact information via the Skyward Family Access Portal.


In addition to sending alerts, the district will post news with the following outlets:
