Enhancing Communications
District 23 is committed to enhancing communications between our schools and parents.  The district uses the following tools as it's primary communication avenues:

Constant Contact: Email newsletters from principals on a bi-weekly basis, and a monthly superintendent/district School Scene newsletter.

Instant Connect:  A telephone, email, and text message broadcast system that will enable school personnel to notify all households and parents of general announcements, reminders, emergencies, and school closings.

Note:  In preparation for any emergencies we will be conducting a test message using Instant Connect on Wednesday, September 12th.  

Website: Have you checked out our new websites? (  

Make sure to navigate to the Virtual Backpack” of each school’s website to find digital handouts that include school/district information. Additionally, you may access the parent tab for other resources. 

School/Classroom Tools: Such as Schoology, Seesaw, Class Dojo, Remind may be used to connect home and school by the classroom teachers.

Social Media: Our schools are currently using Twitter to share out school happenings, photos and more.  Our district is using Twitter and Facebook.  Make sure to follow us!


For us to be able to reach you using the above avenues it is critical that we have your current contact information in our student information system, PowerSchool.  If you have made any changes to your primary phone number or email, or you have not been receiving our communications, please contact your schools office to provide them with the updated information.  All school contact information may be found at the bottom of your school’s website (
