SwiftK12 allows USD 407 to send voice, email, social media and text alerts using real-time contact information from PowerSchool. Automated attendance notifications, low lunch balance alerts, unexpected school closures, schedule changes, upcoming events and many other messages may be sent to parents, students and staff members instantly and reliably. Alert Solutions’ school notification system provides an easy way to communicate with student families and staff members using communication channels they prefer: email, voice and SMS text messaging.

Consider programming these phone numbers into electronic devices to recognize official communications from USD 407.  E-mail messages will be sent from DONOTREPLY@usd407.org.
