District Notifications 
Valley View School District strives to keep parents/guardians, district staff and community members informed of all events and occurrences that affect students and the community as a whole. The district utilizes a messaging service called ParentLink to notify the families of all 18,000+ students, as well as district staff and community members, in less than 30 minutes, if needed. 

Notification Methods
ParentLink uses the following three methods to record and send messages to parents/guardians, district staff, and community.
