Emergency Communications


The Hartland/Lakeside School District will communicate with staff, students, parents and the community in the event of a school or district emergency, school closing, delay or early release due to inclement weather. Information will be communicated when appropriate, at the direction of the Superintendent, and as immediately as possible in the following ways dependent on the situation:
  • Message delivered to phone contact(s) provided in Skyward Family Access
  • Message delivered to email address(s) provided in Skyward Family Access
  • Message delivered by text to phone numbers with texting capability that are provided in Skyward Family Access.
  • Posted on the district webpage
In the event of a school closing or school related emergency messages to parents it is very important that parents/guardians maintain accurate contact information in Skyward Family Access. Please contact your school office with any changes or submit your changes through Family Access directly.

PLEASE NOTE: Another item to consider is when a parent unsubscribes to school messenger phone calls or email messages such as low lunch account balances, you are unsubscribing to all school messenger phone calls and emails. You would no longer receive emergency messages from the district.

District telephone systems are designed to handle the typical school day volume. In the event of an emergency the system cannot manage large volumes of incoming calls. The best source for accurate, timely information will be the HLSD website, attention to voicemail, email or text messaging sent to the numbers provided in your Skyward Family Access account.
