Keeping you informed is a top priority for the United School District. Now there is an additional way for you to be notified through the district's ALERTNow system.

Parents have the option of receiving text messages from the school concerning school-related information, in addition the voice and email messages you are currently receiving. You must opt-in to receive this service, as there may be additional charges for text messaging based upon the contract with your phone company.  To sign up for the text messaging service:
  • Enter United's six-digit PIN:  USD304, and click Opt-In 
  • Provide a primary and a optional, secondary phone number
  • Agree to the text terms and conditions, then submit the information
After confirmation, the district will be able to send emergency text alerts to the designated cell phones, keeping you informed of the latest information.
