Family CommunicationThe primary role of the Communications & Engagement team is to ensure Kyrene families and employees are informed of important news, programs and decisions that impact our students and staff. Kyrene communicates with families through the use of SchoolMessenger, which automatically enrolls parents for school and District emails as well as emergency alert calls. Both families and staff can also sign up for text message alerts by texting "Y" or "yes" to 67587.
