Parent Notifications & Communications
Communication with parents is very important in Dickson County Schools. Parents are kept informed by several different methods such as automated phone calls, text messages, student information portal, social media and local news broadcasts.
To receive alerts and notifications via text message, parents will need to sign up for a Twitter
account, add their cell phone number to the account, find and follow @DCS_TN. Be sure to set your notifications on your Twitter account to allow text messages from @DCS_TN to be sent to your phone.
NOTE: The Dickson County school system is not responsible for parent use of Twitter to receive messages. Dickson County Schools is not responsible for, nor supports setup or cancellation of Twitter notifications. Your subscription to Twitter and the @DCS_TN tweets is purely voluntary.
