Mobile District App
Manitou Springs School District 14 has an official mobile app designed to enable parents, staff, students, and the broader community to stay informed regarding important issues, information, and activities underway within the school community. The free app, which proudly displays the MSSD14 logo, mascot, colors and content, can be downloaded for Apple iOS and Android.

The app will provide families with 24/7 access to district alerts (school closures, etc.), news, calendars, lunch menus, directories, events, sports schedules and results, and more. New information feeds will continue to be made available in the app over the coming school year.  Our official mobile app empowers everyone in the community to stay connected and up-to-date on the information that they want and need, directly from their mobile devices. It’s another great example of our commitment to communication, as we know that in order for families to get involved in school activities and functions, they must first be informed of them. We are excited about how our app will help us communicate more effectively, and we hope it leads to a stronger, more connected school community overall.”
