Have you recently been receiving a lot of messages from the school or school board? Using the SchoolMessenger app or website, parents can determine how they would like to receive messages via any combination of:

  • Phone (home, cell or both)
  • Email
  • Text
  • SchoolMessenger app/website

For each of the following message types:

  • Attendance
  • Commercial (school yearbook, lunches)
  • General (message from principal and school board)
  • Important or urgent non-school hours information
  • Secure documents (report cards)
  • Important or urgent school hours information
  • Survey
  • Teacher Messaging


Follow the steps below to create an account and set your preferences:

  1. Download the SchoolMessenger app, or visit
  2. Create an account (preferably using the email address you have on file with your child’s school).
  3. Once you are logged in, go to Preferences on the lefthand menu and turn on/off phone, text, or email for each message type.


Good to know:

  • The phone number registered at your child’s school will be used for any School Hours Emergency and/or Non-School Hours Emergency communications.
  • All messages will be delivered to your account in the SchoolMessenger app/website. If you wish to receive messages on the app only, you can turn off phone, text, and email options for all message types.

If you have any questions please call 1-800-920-3897, or email [email protected].
