• The school district uses a family notification system called Blackboard Connect to send important messages to families via telephone, text, and email about a child’s attendance at school, nutrition service balances as well as important information when school is canceled or the start of school is delayed. This automated system uses the contact information that is listed in a child’s student records in Skyward. Please make sure that your child’s school has accurate contact information for your child. Early-morning announcements about school closures or delays will be sent by email, not by telephone. Additionally, the district will update the website, District Facebook page, and the LWSD Mobile App.
