Receiving ISD 544 Text Alerts
For notifications, we utilize SchoolMessenger, a service that integrates with Synergy, our Student Information System.
Using SchoolMessenger, we are able to email, message, or call parents of currently enrolled students based upon the phone numbers we have on record in Synergy. This messaging system is our preferred method of communicating with families, as it allows notifications about lunch balances, conference reminders, and absences…so much more than just weather alerts! (Please visit this page for more details about configuring SchoolMessenger.)
If you’d like our weather-related alerts but do not have a child enrolled in our school, you can subscribe to our Remind.com text alerts, which we send when school is closing or delayed.
To subscribe to Remind alerts, send a text to: 81010 – in the body of the text, send: @544alerts
You should receive a response indicating you have been subscribed successfully. This response may also suggest that you download the Remind app. That is not necessary to receive our text alerts.
Please note that SchoolMessenger and Remind are just two of the many ways we alert the public about school closings and delays, and should not be relied upon as your sole source(s) of information. Internet traffic and other factors can often delay text message and email transmissions. We also announce school closings and delays on our website (www.isd544.org), our Facebook page, on local radio, and via Fargo television stations.
