Lakota Local Schools uses a comprehensive mass notification system, SchoolMessenger, for delivering important school- and district-wide messages via email, phone and text message. SchoolMessenger provides parents, guardians and staff with a convenient way to manage their preferences for receiving weather-related, emergency and general notifications from Lakota and its schools.

The system integrates with current student and staff data, automatically updating your account to receive communications based on your current school(s) and/or grade level. Log into your account today to review and modify your preferences for receiving Lakota news.

If you are the official parent or guardian of a current Lakota studentplease log into SchoolMessenger to make sure the phone numbers and email addresses being automatically pulled from Home Access Center are up-to-date and linked with the types of communications you wish to receive. For your username, please use the primary email address associated with your personal Home Access Center account.

If you are a current employee with a valid Lakota email addressplease log into SchoolMessenger to set your communication preferences, and add at least one phone number, for receiving staff-related district and school communications. For your username, please use your Lakota email address to access your staff account. Important note: If you are also a Lakota parent/guardian, you will need to access a separate account for parent-directed communications tied to your child’s school(s). For this account, you will need to adjust your HAC email address to be something different than your Lakota email.

If you are neither a parent nor an employee – or if you are and just wish to sign up for school communications outside of your immediate associations, please create another account through our self sign-up portal.
