Community Sign-ups For School Messenger Now Open

Dana Hills High School has transitioned away from traditional listserv emails. We will now be sending messages through School Messenger. Community members who wish to stay up to date with school messages should sign up here.  Parents of students in the school should not sign up for this service as doing so will result in double messaging.  If parents are not receiving School Messenger messages, please work with your school site to ensure your contact information is currently up-to-date for email, text, and phone messages. 


As an additional service, community members and parents may also download the CUSD app on iTunes and Google Play to receive the same community messages via notifications.
