2017-18 Parent Communication
West Chicago Community High School/Community High School District 94
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! There are many exciting changes in store this school year. We want to keep you informed. We have many school and district level communication vehicles to do just that.
PowerSchool is where you can view grades and attendance, and update home address, phone number and email address. For assistance logging in to PowerSchool, please contact Beth Schuck at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at (630) 876-6227. It is important to keep your contact information up to date as we draw from this database for emergency phone calls and parent emails.
2. SchoolMessenger Notification System – Phone, email and Text (NEW!)
This notification system is used to send phone calls and emails to parents for attendance, information, and emergencies. It draws from the database of contact information in PowerSchool. We have also asked for student cell phone numbers so we can contact students directly in an emergency.
Text Messages (NEW!): There is an “opt in” process to receive emergency text messages from the District. Text “Yes” to 68453, or watch for a text in mid-late October to the mobile device we have on file for you: “WCCHS text messages. Reply Y for aprx 3 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4info. Msg & data rates may apply. See schoolmessenger.com/tm”.
