Phone, Text, and Email Notification

  • NOTIFICATION SIGNUP: Sometimes it's necessary for the District to contact parents, students, or staff with an important message. From weather-related announcements or schedule changes to warnings of extreme emergencies or crisis situations, the Lockport City School District relies on the Blackboard Connect Notification System to contact thousands of parents, students, staff and community members securely within minutes.

    In order to provide the best possible communication between our district and parents, students, and staff, we request that you update your phone number and email address in our student information system.
