If you provided a cell number, you should also receive a text. Notifications will also appear on the Almasd.net website, Facebook, and Twitter. If your phone number or address has changed recently, please call the school your child attends and update that information.
Our teachers, counselors and principals also send out messages with our notification system. Be sure your child's school has accurate information.
