Emergency Communications Overview
Wylie ISD conducted a test of our emergency communications system on Wednesday, January 27 at 10:05 am. We sent a message to any and all phone, cell and email addresses associated with parent/guardian accounts at that time. If you did not receive this communication or did not receive it via your preferred address, please follow the instructions below to update your contact information in Skyward or Blackboard.
Wylie ISD values communication with students and parents. We always want to ensure you are notified in the event of a school closure due to weather or another emergency. In the event of a school closure or emergency, Wylie ISD will utilize the Blackboard system to call, email, and text all numbers and addresses associated with your account. Additionally, we will send a push notification to our district mobile app and post the information on our social media pages. To ensure you receive emergency communications via the method you prefer, we need you to verify your contact information is current and accurate.
Skyward feeds information to other district systems, including Blackboard, therefore your information within the Skyward system should always be valid, current and correct. While every guardian of a Wylie ISD student has their own login to Skyward and Blackboard, there may be times where the limits within the Skyward system will not allow families to include all the contact numbers/addresses needed. In such a case, families can add additional contact information to the Blackboard system, via the district app or the web portal.
Use the navigation links to view instructions on making changes to your contact information so that in the event of an emergency, you will be promptly notified. If you have any questions, please contact the Wylie ISD Communications Team.
