Important District Messages

In the event of school closures, delayed starts and early releases, St. Cloud Area School District 742 utilizes a wide variety of channels of communication for families and staff. The immediate communication is delivered by an automated phone message and email. In addition, information is shared on the district’s website and social media sites as well as on local and Twin Cities media.

In the past we became aware of family members and staff who did not receive the automated phone messages. We will continue to work with SchoolMessenger to address any systems issues.

There are a few steps you can take to ensure optimal success in delivery of all communications:

1. Be sure your personal information in Skyward is current.

2. Save any email address with as a “safe sender.”

3. Add 320.370.8000 to your contact list.

4. Go to and create an account using the email that is in Skyward. All messages can be viewed in one place with no spam filters.

5. Download the free SchoolMessenger app to your mobile device.
