Parents/guardians are automatically set up to receive broadcasts from their child(ren)'s school(s) by phone, email, and text through our communication platform, SchoolMessenger Communicate!

Adjust your preferences at any time for how you wish to receive broadcasts (e.g. phone only, email only, text only, a combination, or all three!), and the types of broadcasts you wish to receive through either of the following ways.

Using the email address that the school has on file for you, create an account at: 
  • go.schoolmessenger.com; and/or
  • Download the SchoolMessenger app (App Store or Google Play) on your mobile device (BLUE symbol)

Once you have logged in with the new password you created, select “Preferences” from the top left and make your adjustments.

Receiving broadcasts by text requires an extra step. Using the wireless number the school has on file for you, you must opt in by texting Yes using the short code 978338 (standard message and data rates may apply).

If you already created a SchoolMessenger account last year, you are all set. You do not need to go through this process again.

IMPORTANT: Broadcasts will be sent to you based on the phone, wireless, and email contact information that you submitted to the school. Contact the school at any time if you wish to make changes to your contact information.
