Sign-Up for District Communications
Parents/Guardians of Enrolled LOSD Students
Registration for district and school communication
LOSD uses e-mail lists (ListServ) to facilitate communication. These lists are in place for the district as a whole, for each school, and for parents/guardians whose students receive special services.
Access to these lists is restricted to district administrators and designated staff. All information distributed via ListServ must first be approved by the appropriate administrator. Please be advised that it is not possible to customize the delivery of district information.
All families are asked to provide an email address during registration. No further action is required. To change contact information, please update it during the LOSD student verification window, between May-September, or contact your school office for assistance or outside that verification window.
Removal from school and district email distribution
If you no longer have students in LOSD schools (i.e., if your last student has graduated or if you have moved), your email address will be removed from school and district lists automatically as enrollment records are updated. During the summer, this happens at the end of July/early August as enrollment records are rolled over for the new school year. Graduates may retain their school email address until October 1 of their graduation year, at which time it will be discontinued.
Community members who do not have students enrolled in LOSD schools are invited to stay connected.
A community email list is established for people who want to receive district communications and who do not have students enrolled in the Lake Oswego School District. Your subscription to this list will include the weekly LOSD newsletter and a weekly notice of LOSD Community School offerings, as well as important standalone messages from the Superintendent and emergency alerts pertinent to the entire community. We are unable to add community members to school-specific email lists.
To subscribe to LOSD Community communications:
- Address an email to the following: firstname.lastname@example.org
- In the body of the e-mail, type the following, inserting your last name and first name in place of the text in red: subscribe community_list Last Name, First Name
- Send the email
- You will receive a reply from the List Server asking you to confirm your request.
- Reply to the confirmation request and type ok as the text of your message (Type only the letters ok, with no quotation marks or additional punctuation.)
- You will receive an email confirmation that the list owner will add you to the list.
NOTE: Parents/guardians of students enrolled in Lake Oswego Schools are automatically added to district and school email lists.
