Sulphur Springs Independent School District uses Blackboard Connect for our notification service. With the Blackboard Connect service, Sulphur Springs ISD can send time-sensitive messages to students and staff via telephone, e-mail and SMS (text) within minutes. The Blackboard Connect service will be used for timely district-wide notifications regarding school events, closings or delays and will complement our emergency preparedness procedures. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SIGN UP, IF YOU HAVE A CHILD IN SSISD OR IF YOU ARE AN EMPLOYEE OF SSISD YOU ARE ALREADY IN THE SYSTEM. You can go to the parent portal below to take control of your notification preferences but this is not a requirement.
