The Dallas ISD and all schools use an automated phone message system to communicate with parents and staff about important news. Schools use the system to alert parents to school events, student absences, and other important information. To ensure that they do not miss any announcements from the schools or the district, parents should make sure that their children’s records include current contact information like phone number and address.
