DCSD to Test Emergency Messaging Thursday
CASTLE ROCK - On Thursday, May 1 at 11 a.m., the Douglas County School District will be conducting a test of our emergency messaging systems in coordination with other school districts across the state.
To ensure our notifications are timely and dependable, DCSD is committed to regularly testing our emergency notification systems.
This test will include voice, email, and text messages, and will be labeled as “THIS IS A TEST OF THE DCSD EMERGENCY COMMUNICATION SYSTEM.”
Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring their emergency contact information is correct in the Parent Portal. Only phone numbers and email addresses that are check-marked under the "Emergency" column will receive Thursday's test message. Families that need to update a phone number within your Parent Portal Contact Preferences screen will need to contact their school registrar.
We’ve set up a SchoolMessenger FAQ page on the DCSD website, where you'll find tips on how to update your contact information, steps to take if you don't receive the emergency test email on Thursday, and more.
