The School District of University City communicates with parents and families in numerous ways.
SchoolMessenger is our email and emergency notification tool. Please make sure we have current contact information for you at all times by visiting the Parent Portal and making any necessary changes. The Office of Communications typicallly sends a weekly Superintendent email to all families through SchoolMessenger with timely, important information. We hope you find the information useful, but you may opt out of these emails at any time through the Parent Portal. In an emergency or in cases with breaking news, SchoolMessenger sends parent notifications through emails, texts and recorded phone messages.
Superintendent Family Emails are typically sent on Fridays via SchoolMessenger. For a complete archive of past emails, click here.
Zoom with the Superintendent is a regular series of online sessions to meet and ask questions with Superintendent Sharonica Hardin-Bartley. Click here to register for the next upcoming sessions.
