Blackboard Connect

The Town of Highland Park utilizes the Blackboard Connect service, a mass notification system to keep residents and businesses in Highland Park informed. With this service, the Town of Highland Park can send a personalized voice message to residents / businesses within minutes regarding a specific incident: severe weather, emergency events, and mosquito ground spraying are examples. You may elect to receive the notifications by phone, text message, and email.


The Blackboard Connect service will be used to supplement our current communication plans and augment public safety / first responder services. Please accept our invitation to participate in this great service. We know that your personal information is important, and rest assured that we will not share it with anyone.

Update Your Account

Every month Blackboard Connect automatically retrieves home and business telephone numbers that are available for public access. However, it’s important for you to sign-up to Blackboard Connect and add those avenues for communication where you are most likely to receive the message immediately. We suggest you add the following:

  • Cell Phone numbers - You may receive both voice and text messages. We encourage both.
  • Email Address - You may add multiple email addresses.
  • Additional home or work telephone number
