Get updates from SAISD!

San Antonio Independent School District believes positive home to school relations are critical to the support and success of our schools. It is our hope that improved communications with the community will further strengthen that relationship. The district utilizes a variety of tools to communicate directly with students and parents to ensure our messages are clear and our audiences are connected to all that's going on in the district.

District Newsletters
SAISD regularly shares updates with the community through two District publications. The family newsletter is meant to share general updates about what is happening across the District and the employee insider shares information relevant information for all staff.

When large group notifications must go out, SAISD contacts families by phone, email, and text message using a system called SchoolMessenger, which is one of the most widely used communications tools for PreK-12 districts. SAISD and your school also use SchoolMessenger in order to let you know about emergency situations, remind you about school and district events, update you on your child’s attendance, and more.

Sometimes your school may ask you for updated contact information. If your phone number or address has changed since you enrolled your student, please let your school know so they can update this information in the district's student information system. SAISD and SchoolMessenger do not share any of your information, and we follow federal regulations on student and user privacy.

Option to receive text messages on mobile phones


SAISD schools have the ability to send text messages as notifications via SchoolMessenger.

Text messages will be used to send updates to families. SchoolMessenger is one of the primary ways the school district communicates important information to parents.

You can make sure we have your updated cell phone information on file by: 

  1. Calling us at (210) 554-2205.
  2. Please provide a call back number, the names of your students, and the schools they attend for faster service.


Text message notifications are always sent from the short code 67587. Please note, if you text this number and your mobile phone is not entered in the student information system, messages will not be sent to it.  You can check to see if your information is in the student information system by asking your school secretary.

To stop receiving text messages on a particular number, text "STOP" to 67587 at any time or opt out by calling us at (210) 554-2205.
