Washington Community School District also uses School Messenger to send e-mail and SMS text notifications when classes are to be closed, dismissed early or started late due to weather or other circumstances. If you have students enrolled in our District and have provided your email address and/or a phone number that can receive SMS text messages, you will receive an opt-in message from the school that you must reply to in order to get the notifications. You can manage your notification preferences by logging into your Powerschool Parent Account. Patrons who do not have students enrolled in the District can still receive the notifications by signing up through the School Messenger Self Sign Up link on our website.
