On Thursday, November 20 at 2:30, DMPS conducted a test of our automated message systems.

The safety, security and well-being of our students and staff is always a top priority at Des Moines Public Schools. As Winter draws near, and the possibility of weather-related closings, delays or dismissals become a possibility, we want to make sure people receive such announcements as soon as they are made and delivered.

That’s why DMPS tested our automated message system on Thursday.

On November 20th at 2:30 PM a test message was sent to parents/guardians in one of five ways:

  • Telephone
  • Text message
  • Email
  • Infinite Campus mobile app
  • Infinite Campus parent portal

If you do not currently have an Infinite Campus account, please contact the main office of your student’s school. They will be able to give you the activation key and directions on how to create your account.

If you would like to download the Infinite Campus app, go to App store or Google Play on your phone and search for Infinite Campus. After you download the app you will need to enter the district’s ID, which is JQZPSD.

In addition, to receive news and information about DMPS at any time, be sure to download the DMPS mobile app (available for iPhone and Android) and follow the school district on Twitter and Facebook.
