Emergency Communication/Official Channels for Communication
Please ensure that contact information - to include both home contacts and emergency contacts - for your child(ren) is up-to-date in Skyward as this is what is used to reach families in the event of an emergency, a change in schedule due to weather, transportation delays, etc. You are able to make changes to this information as needed throughout the school year.
It is also important to ensure that you only look for communication via our official channels. Please click the picture to view a chart illustrating the various ways our stakeholders can connect through our official channels with individual staff, a specific school building, and the district. This chart is also available on our website.
Register for Text Alerts
Cumberland Valley School District uses text messaging as a mode of communication during inclement weather, emergencies, bus delays, and more. If you are a parent/guardian who is new to the District or if you have not previously signed up to receive text alerts, please sign into your Skyward Family Access account and complete the “Text (SMS) Notifications” form.

1:1 Device Insurance
As a reminder, the deadline to enroll in our voluntary 1:1 device insurance program is November 4, 2022. Cost is $25 per student per year, with waivers in place for families facing economic hardship and families with four or more students. While not required, we strongly encourage parents/guardians to take advantage of this program as this optional insurance will help to decrease the out-of-pocket expenses families may have related to device damage.
Please reference the email sent to all families on September 15, 2022, for more enrollment details. Additionally, more info about the 1:1 program, including details about damage/insurance and device care/support, is also available on our website by clicking here.
