Communications Department

The Communications Department serves the Meramec Valley R-III School District's students, parents, and staff members and community as a source for up-to-date information about events, programs, and recognitions taking place across the District and their impact on the District's residents.  The Department is managed by one member and provides District stakeholders with timely, two-way communication through a variety of channels, including print and email publications, the District's website, videos, social media pages, community events, and media relations.  

Communication Notification System

In the case of inclement weather or other emergency situations, an announcement of changes will be made through our communication notification system (voice call/text/mobile app/social media/website live feed) and media will be notified. Our Communication Notification System allows school administrators to keep parents and staff updated quickly and efficiently with personalized messages that help parents and staff stay actively involved in their child’s education. Meramec Valley R-III School District utilizes this tool to enhance ongoing communication with parents and staff. Patrons can use the free mobile app to get rapid notifications and access a variety of school-related information. News Channel 2, Channel 4, Channel 5, and the District website ( will also have the school cancelation information.

*Download the FREE MVR-III School District mobile app to streamline school communication on the go. Select settings to choose the school(s) you want to follow. Notifications will be sent to those that sign up under settings.
