Weekly Newsletter
Each Friday, we send out a district newsletter to all students, staff, and parents/guardians. Each school site also sends out a parent/guardian newsletter once a week. If you are not receiving these newsletters and would like to, please follow these steps: 
  1. Check your spam folders. If you find an email from "Deer Creek School District" or your child's school site or principal, report the message as "not spam" and move it to your inbox. 
  2. Login to the Parent Portal of Infinite Campus and double-check the parent emails listed under settings
  3. If you have no emails in spam and the emails are listed correctly in Parent Portal, contact the secretaries at your child's school site. 
You can view the district newsletter here

Communication Methods - Annual Reminder
Deer Creek School District utilizes a broadcast messaging and notification system to communicate with families. There are three channels within the system: phone call, email and text message. It is imperative that parents review their communication preferences in the Parent Portal to ensure they opt-in to the various communication channels. In the event you believe you are not receiving our district or school emails, please double check the information on your Parent Portal and contact your child’s school site for assistance. 

Crisis communications are usually tiered; the first communication briefly summarizes the situation and follow up communications provide more details, if necessary and/or appropriate. Communications are usually only sent to the school(s) affected. We will also use social media to communicate emergency messages if needed, only after and in addition to our mass notifications via phone call, text, and email. 

Communications do not share discipline details for the individuals involved, as we are obligated to protect the rights and privacy of our students and staff due to state and federal privacy laws. 

Generally, we do not send broadcast messages for student medical emergencies, fire/tornado drills, or other situations where there is no threat to student or staff safety. First responder presence at a building does not necessarily indicate an emergency. Our first responders visit our schools regularly for drills, training, classroom visits, and more.
