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:

Image of notification options

  • 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.

Picture Day Tips

Take Precautionary Measures!

Pack a safe spill-proof lunch. Include some face wipes to avoid food-covered faces. Accidents happen, but you can try your hardest to stop them in their tracks.

Give Your Child Special Instructions

For example: remove your glasses, take off your coat, leave your hair down, sit up straight

Let Their Style Shine!

Select a style for their portrait that compliments their outfit but also showcases their personality

Make Sure You Both Love The Outfit

Pick out an ensemble that you bot love and your child is happy wearing. It will make for a more relaxed photo when they are comfortable.

Accessorize!

Add interest and character to the portrait with simple, low-key accessories that help showcase their personality.
