• COMMUNICATIONS

  • Atchison Public Schools strives for open, effective communications between school and home. The district uses several forms of communication to help ensure that families and the community receive timely messages and announcements. 

     

    Email

    Email is an important tool the district uses to maintain open dialogue with Atchison families. Parents who keep a current email address on file with each student's school can utilize email for:

    • Teacher-to-home communication
    • School-to-home communication
    • District-to-home communication
    It is more important than ever for parents to maintain a current email address with their child's school office. If your email address changes, please contact your student's school office to provide an updated address as soon as possible. 


    Website

    The district's website contains a wealth of information for parents. Everything from enrolling your child in school to finding the dates for Parent Teacher Conferences can be found here.

    SchoolMessenger

    This is the district's automated phone calling and email system. There are often times when either the district or the school must contact hundreds of parents quickly for sudden changes in schedules due to emergencies or important school announcements. To make this system the most effective, it is important that the school has the most accurate contact information (i.e., phone number, email address, etc.) on record. 

    Note:  1) Please notify your child's school if there are any changes to your contact information throughout the school year. 2) This service requires no registration by the parent. 3) All information and contact numbers are strictly secure and confidential and are only used for the purposes described above.

    Please "like" the Atchison Public Schools page on Facebook. School announcements, closings, stories, and photos will be shared regularly. To follow the district on Facebook, simply go to the district's website and click on the Facebook icon at the bottom of the page.
