This page serves as an overview of how we communicate with the families of Melissa Schools, and how you as a parent or guardian can stay connected during the school year.
School Announcements & Alerts
Your child’s school, and the district, will send electronic communication (via Remind) to parents and guardians throughout the school year. Depending on your child’s grade level, this can include: general announcements, newsletters, critical alerts, attendance notifications, and gradebook updates.
In order to receive this communication, the contact information for your child’s primary guardian(s) must be up-to-date in the Parent Portal.
Log in to the Parent Portal
and visit the tabs titled ‘My Account’ and ‘Alerts’ to double-check that your name, email address, phone number, and alert settings are accurate.
If you feel you are not receiving communication from your child’s school as you should be, please contact the school to verify that your information is listed correctly in our system.
Remind Notification System
Remind is the notification system used by Melissa Schools for school announcements and critical alerts from the district. Teachers may also choose to send classroom announcements through Remind.
School Delays & Closures
Our communication process for unexpected school delays and closures at Melissa Schools is outlined on the School Delays & Closures page.
Each of our schools maintain an active social media presence on Facebook and Twitter. Families are encouraged to follow their child’s school on social media to see photo highlights, read school news, and for reminders about upcoming activities.
Below are the official social media accounts for Melissa ISD. In addition, the official school social media accounts are featured on our school web pages.
