Skylert Messaging Service
Eanes ISD uses Skylert Notification Service to send parents information via text, email, phone, or all three. Parents will have the option to customize how they receive emergency notifications and also have the ability to receive other general communication.
While parents may opt out of receiving emergency notifications such as weather emergencies or lockdowns, please note that if you opt out of receiving emergency notifications, you will not be notified via the Skylert system if there is an emergency at your child’s campus.
Setting Your Preferences
Parents are able to edit their settings by logging into Family Access and selecting the Skylert link on the left navigation. Use the 'Forgot your Login/Password?' link if you need help logging in. Visit Family Access: http://www.eanesisd.net/familyaccess
To set options for which notifications you wish to receive, simply check the box in the appropriate category. Uncheck any boxes for any notifications you do not wish to receive. See category descriptions below. You are able to add additional phone numbers, email addresses and/or text message numbers. Make sure you click the save button after you have made any changes.
