Items of Interest at DMS
Due to school cancelations, the end of the 3rd quarter has been moved back to March 21st.
ISAT tesing will take place March 5-7 in grades 5th-8th in reading and math. No homework, tests, or quizzes will be assinged during these three days.
The district is excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance communication by allowing us to deliver important information to you via SMS text messaging. This service is not intended to replace our existing means of communication-rather it will enhance them.
The service is provided by SchoolMessenger. Information can be found at
The district will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant.
In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.
Simply text "yes" to the number 68453. You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message: You are registered to receive approx. 3 msgs/mo. Text STOP to quit, HELP for help.
You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers you wish to include.
In addition to preforming the opt-in process above you’ll want to insure that the district has your wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven’t already provided that information to your school please contact them and provide them with the information.
The district will be officially launching the new service in approximately a month, so until then you won’t receive any further text messages.
Please note, although the district does not charge you for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact DMS at 542-2646 ext. 1150.
