Email, Texts & Phone Calls

Sapulpa Public Schools uses School Messenger, our database-driven communications tool, for District and teacher communication with parents and students in the form of phone calls, emails, and text messages. School Messenger pulls the contact information from the school database system, PowerSchool.

It is vital for parents to always have current contact information updated when you get a new email address and/or phone number. To provide us with new or updated contact information, simply call your school site office and have the front office secretary update your Demographics Profile in PowerSchool. In addition, every April, you are asked as parents to complete Online Student Verification, which allows you to update any information. You will be sent an email with the link for verification every April and also reminder phone calls until the required completion date of August.

Phone calls are usually sent at the District or School Site level and are reserved for emergencies, school closures and information of relative importance. Phone calls are sent from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. as to not interfere with parents' work or daily activities, except in the case of an emergency in which the phone calls are real-time and transmitted immediately.

Emails can be sent by the District, School Site, Coaches, activity group Directors, and Teachers to parent and student emails. All students are given an email account in the District. Depending on the age of your student, they may not have been instructed or aware that they have an account. Email communication to students usually occurs between the 6th and 12th-grade levels. Emails can be sent throughout the day and will arrive in the convenience of your inbox for review. The email addresses are accessed through PowerSchool.

Texts may be received when a phone call has been sent, stating you have been sent a phone call by SPS with a message which you can download. In addition, some Teachers, Coaches, and Activity Groups have begun using the text feature for communications. To allow your phone to receive texts (should the sender select the text feature), simply text "yes" to 68-453. Standard text messaging rates will apply. Each text message will include the ability for you to opt out to no longer receive texts from us.

Each phone call, email, and text message will be translated into Spanish. In order to receive the communication in Spanish, please indicate as such when enrolling or when updating contact information.
