Skylert Notification System

Red Oak ISD has upgraded it’s district-wide notification system with a system called Skylert. Skylert allows Red Oak ISD the ability to send instant communication via phone, SMS text message, and e-mail to parents. We will utilize this effective and efficient communication system as part of our continuous effort of keeping staff, students and parents informed and safe!

As a parent/guardian, this new notification system allows you the opportunity to identify your notification preferences and opt in/out of specific message types through your Skyward Family Access account.

Changes to your contact information can be done via Skyward Family Access or by contacting your student's campus.

The Skylert notification system allows Red Oak ISD the ability to disseminate information to parents by way of three notification types: Emergency, General, and Attendance.

  • Emergency notifications will reference events such as school closings, safety related incidents, and other emergency notifications determined by district administrators. Emergency notifications will be sent between the hours of 6:00AM and 9:00PM, or as needed.

  • General notifications are for informational purposes only and will reference various district and campus events and information. General notifications will be sent between the hours of 8:00AM and 9:00PM.

  • Attendance notifications will only be generated if your student has an unexcused absence for one or more periods during an instructional day. If your student is marked absent, a system generated attendance phone call will be sent between the hours of 10:30am and 9:00PM.


Be sure to verify or update your Student and Parent/Guardian Information today!

  • Log in to Skyward Family Access.
  • Once logged in, click on Skylert on the General Information menu on the left navigation bar.
