Dickinson ISD launching text messaging
to communicate with parents

Dickinson ISD will have a new method to communicate with parents, employees and the community the next time the district has time sensitive information share about an emergency or school closure situation.


The school district is launching a new service that will enhance communication by allowing the district to deliver important information via the School Messenger text messaging service. This service is not intended to replace the district's existing means of communication, but rather it will enhance them in the event of an emergency.


In order to participate in the new service, those interested must indicate their willingness to receive text messages to their phone. The process is simple and takes only a few seconds to complete.


Simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453: subscribe, optin, yes. The message, "You are registered to receive approx 3 msgs/mo. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help," will be received letting you know the registration process was successful.


The opt-in process can be repeated for any other wireless numbers you want to include. While there is no charge from the district for this service, parents are asked to remember when signing up for the text messaging service that they are responsible for any text messaging charges from their wireless provider for receiving text messages.

In addition to performing the opt-in process above, parents are asked to ensure the district has correct wireless numbers updated in the Skyward student database.


May 26 is now a regular school day
for Dickinson ISD students and staff

Dear DISD Families:

On Tuesday, January 28, Dickinson ISD students, along with all students in Galveston County, missed school because of winter storm advisories and the threat of hazardous driving conditions.  The Texas Education Agency has ruled that local school districts must make up any day(s) missed due to inclement weather.

On the 2013-14 school calendar, Monday May 26 is listed as a “Possible bad weather make-up day.”  All students will thus have a regular school day on Monday, May 26. Because that is Memorial Day, a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Services, each campus will hold a program to commemorate the day and to honor the sacrifice of our service men and women. Information about the programs on each campus will be posted on the DISD website, and parents are invited to attend the events on their children’s campus.

If you have questions, please contact your child’s school or my office. Thank you for your continued support of our school district.

Best regards,
Vicki Mims, Superintendent
