Stay Connected

Whether you need to know if school is closed or you want to know what's happening in the Bellevue School District, there are many ways to stay informed.

The district uses the School Messenger notification system to send important announcements to parents and guardians via phone calls, emails and text messages. You can decide how you would like to be contacted by setting up a Contact Manager account.

You already have a phone number on file with the district and may have a current email address in your student's record. If so, you will already receive calls and emails. By setting up a Contact Manager account you can adjust how you prefer to be notified. You can also add additional phone, text and email contact information.
