Communications

Mountainburg Public Schools utilizes many available avenues to communicate with employees, students, parents, and patrons of the district.



We encourage you to become familiar with the district website and download the district app to your phone.

You Asked, We Deliver!

In a parent survey that was done about school communications, one of the top requests was more two-way communication between teachers and parents. Parents, you asked, we deliver!


Through Apptegy, the company we contract with for our district website and app, has provided us with a communication feature through the DragonsLink App called Rooms.



  1. Download the DragonsLink App through your phone's app store.
  2. If the email on file in E-School is correct, you will receive an email invite from edurooms to join Rooms once we have everything established.



As with anything new, we will all need to learn how to use this feature. But it is a good learning curve for all because in the end, it means success for our students.
