The Independence School District’s Public Relations Department exists to provide our school community with vital information and share our students’ excellence.

Direct Communication

The Independence School District uses School Messenger to send direct phone and email communications to families. Families are automatically signed up to receive direct communication from their school(s) and the district. To update contact information contact your school(s).

The Independence School District will move to a new, unified communication platform, ParentSquare, starting July 1, 2024. Learn more about ParentSquare.


ISD Insider, the Independence School District’s monthly newsletter, keeps the community up to date on important district news, student and staff celebrations, and opportunities to engage with our schools.
