Skyward Skylert Setup

With our winter weather fast approaching, it is important for families to have information up to date in Skyward Family Access to get notification of school closings. The Cameron School District will be using the Skylert/School Messenger which is tied to the Family Access/Skyward student database. This messaging system allows the District to quickly send out notifications in an emergency situation, school closing and reminders from individual schools. The following simple steps are required for you to receive the notifications the way you want to receive them.

Go to . Select “Parents” from the top menu bar and then select “Skyward.” Families received log-in access information at the October conferences. If you don’t remember your login/password information, please contact your school secretary to obtain this information.
Once in Family Access, click on the Skylert link on the left menu. In the upper box titled “My Skyward Contact Info” you will see the contact information you provided in the verification process. Please be sure that the phone numbers and email addresses are correct, and make any changes that are necessary. Any changes automatically update the information contained in your student’s Skyward record. The phone numbers provided in this contact area will only receive phone calls, not text messages.
You will also see 5 columns to the right that list the types of notifications you can receive:

  • School Hours Emergency – for events that happen when school is in session, such as early closings due to inclement weather or other emergencies.

  • Attendance – Our schools are not using this feature. If a student has not been called in absent a phone is made to families from the school office.

  • General – for informational purposes only, these notifications will reference various district or school events and information such as a reminder about parent-teacher conferences.

  • Non-School Hours Emergency – for events that happen when school is not in session, such as school closings due to overnight inclement weather.

• Survey - not using at this time.
