Talk203 is District 203’s popular communication system, which combines both telephone
and email notifications to our families, staff and community within one
provider, Blackboard Connect. Messages are issued at both the school level and
district-wide and range from information regarding forthcoming events, to
important decisions affecting students and staff, to emergency bulletins such as
weather-related school closings.

Since Talk203 is tied to our Student Information System, any parent who has provided a
phone number and an email address to the District during the student
registration process will automatically be included in the database to receive
Talk203 messages. If you did not provide an email address at registration, you
may be added to the system by notifying the school’s main office.

Community members may also sign up to receive district-wide Talk203 messages by clicking
on the Talk203 for Community Members button found on the right side of District
203’s homepage:
