Update Your Alert Settings with SchoolMessenger

As the weather gets colder and the possibility of weather delays or closings increases, we’d like to encourage everyone to take a few minutes to update their contact and preferences in our instant-alert system, SchoolMessenger.

We automatically load the home phone number and email address given to us at registration into SchoolMessenger. You have the option to add other email addresses, phone numbers, or cell phone numbers for text messaging and set the preferences for which category of call should be sent to either contact.

Some common scenarios include:

  • Add your daycare provider to receive a text if school is delayed or cancelled (don’t worry, they’ll only receive one message per alert – even if multiple people add them to their account).
  • Add a grandparent (or other family member) who occasionally picks up or drops off your child to receive alerts.
  • Add your work email.
  • Add your cell phone as an SMS contact to receive text alerts instead of voice calls if you can’t always stop to listen to the audio message.

Get started at https://go.schoolmessenger.com.

If you’re not sure if you’ve signed up in the past, Click Sign Up and try to sign up. It will let you know if you’ve already registered. If you have registered and don’t remember your password, use the “forgot password” link on the Log In page to have a password reset link sent to your email.

If you have any questions on how to set your preferences, you may call 800-920-3897 or email [email protected] If you are unable to login or sign up, call the school and make sure they have your preferred email address setup in our system and it will update overnight.

 

SchoolMessenger also provides apps for your smart phone that will allow you to receive push notifications for alerts, update your contact preferences, and review past messages that were sent out (no more digging through voicemails!). Click the buttons below for the the iOS or Android app.
