School Notifications - Skylert

SchoolMessenger Logo

Rockdale ISD uses SchoolMessenger to notify parents and students about:

  • Emergencies (inclement weather updates, school closings, etc.)
  • Absences
  • General Notifications (upcoming events, etc.)

All Emergency messages are sent out by Phone Calls, Emails, and Text Messages.

SchoolMessenger is free to use. The app is available on Android Google Play and the Apple iOS app store. If you prefer to use the website instead of the mobile app, you may access SchoolMessenger here.


To receive Text Messages, you must opt-in by texting "YES" to 68453 and also, you will need to make sure the school has your cell phone listed to receive text messages.

You have the ability to edit how you receive all other messages by changing your notification preferences in Skyward Family Access by selecting Skylert on the left side menu or also in the SchoolMessenger App.

To update your PRIMARY PHONE - contact your student's front office. Work and cell phone numbers can be updated in Skylert.
