Test of DCSD emergency notification system: August 30, 2016

DCSD will conduct a test of its emergency notification system, including email, mobile app, social media, text and voice messaging on Tuesday, August 30. Should a real emergency arise, the test will be delayed.

How do I update my emergency contact information?

Log into the Infinite Campus Parent Portal (campus.dcsdk12.org/icprod/portal/icprod.jsp) and click on “Contact Preferences” in the left-hand column. If you see an incorrect phone number or email, please contact the registrar at your child’s school to request an update.

I did not receive a text message. How can I fix this?

After confirming that you have opted-in to text messaging for emergency and/or school notifications via Infinite Campus, please send a text message to the following:

  • Emergency text notification: Send text to 68453 with the message “YES”
  • Standard/School text notification: Send text to 67587 with the message “YES”

What phone number will my caller ID show when I get calls?

When you receive communication from the DCSD SchoolMessenger system, the number displayed will depend on the type of message. The two types of communication include:

1.     Standard/School Notifications (lunch balance, event reminders, general communication)

o    877-279-4061 (you may wish to add this number to your contacts)

2.     Emergency Notifications (critical communications)

o    855-695-9448 (you may wish to add this number to your contacts)

Have additional questions?

Should you have additional questions, please contact the IT Support Center (303-387-0001) to ensure you receive emergency notifications accurately and quickly.
