AISD/Kiker “School Messenger” Phone Messages
AISD uses an automated phone message system called “School Messenger” to communicate important district information out to AISD families. Kiker also may use school messenger to communicate important time-sensitive information by phone. The system is also used to notify parents of students who were absent from school for all or part of the day.
