Mass Notification System

Sycamore Community School District 427 utilizes SchoolMessenger for its Mass Notification System. This system integrates with the District’s Student Information System, Infinite Campus.  It is important for families to update contact information with the District when something changes.

The following information is imported into our Mass Notification System.
