Los Angeles Unified uses a District-wide notification system called Blackboard Connect to personally communicate with parents and employees regarding emergency situations, attendance, school events, and other important issues impacting you and your child. The Blackboard Connect service allows us to send personalized voice messages to your family’s home, work, or cell phones, and also contact you through email, SMS text messaging and social networks.

Parents/Guardians and employees can cancel the SMS service at any time. Just text "STOP" to the short code. After you send the SMS message "STOP" to us, we will send you an SMS message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. After this, you will no longer receive SMS messages from the District.

If you are experiencing issues with the messaging program you can reply with the keyword "HELP" for more assistance, or you can get help directly at 877-090-2581.

Carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. Parents and guardians are responsible for the cost of text messages.  Message and data rates may apply for any messages sent to you from us and to us from you. Text messages are sent frequently throughout the school year. If you have any questions about your text plan or data plan, it is best to contact your wireless provider.
