Electronic Communications & Parent/Guardian Email Databases
The District has two tools for contacting parents/guardians electronically: an email database that is a part of Tyler SIS Student 360 and SchoolMessenger, which is our emergency communications system.
The email database is linked to the Student Profile which is maintained for every student enrolled in the North Allegheny School District. Parents/guardians can view this information by logging into Tyler SIS Student 360. Parents/guardians should be proactive and update this information when it changes by calling the main office of the school where their student attends.
The District provides notices regarding report cards and interim updates, key upcoming events, school notices, and other essential information from principals and administrators via email. Every student is required to have an email contact on file for an adult primary contact in their Student Profile. If extenuating circumstances prevent a parent/guardian from providing an email address, they should contact the principal of the school where the student attends.
SchoolMessenger is the first and primary communication vehicle used by the District in the event of any emergency. SchoolMessenger is also used to notify parents/guardians regarding school closings, delays, significant health-related issues, and other critical issues. SchoolMessenger offers the option of notification via phone calls, emails, and/or text messages. A SchoolMessenger account is created for all parents/guardians and employees on their first day with the District. For more information on updating your preferences, please visit the District's SchoolMessenger page.
The North Allegheny School District maintains these databases of emails and other contact information for the purpose of sharing important District and school communications. This information is housed and managed within the District and is only shared with external entities that are directly related to the academic programming at North Allegheny.
Individual teachers sometimes decide to incorporate the dissemination of information for parents/guardians via group emails. Teachers should give parents/guardians the option of being a part of these group lists and the option of discontinuing their participation at any time.
