Rapid City Area Schools uses a notification service called School Messenger to send important information to families via phone calls, emails and text message. To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, you may receive a text message on the wireless cell phone number that the district has on file, requesting that you “opt in” to receive important information via text. You can also register to receive text messages from the district. Simply type “Yes” to 67587.

You may also download the School Messenger app from the Apple Store and Google Play.  This app will allow you to set Push Notifications, as well as manage which messages should be received at each phone number or email address on file.

What to expect during a school emergency

School safety is an important issue and one that is certainly at the forefront of many of our minds as we send our children back to school. Not only is it important for students to feel safe and secure in their school surroundings, it’s important for their learning and growth as well. That’s why the Rapid City Area Schools staff in partnership with local law enforcement continuously update and align emergency response procedures with best practices.
