Background on this New Notification Program
To strengthen family-school partnerships, Suffolk Public Schools is excited to introduce SchoolMessenger. This new notification and communication service will notify families and employees through phone calls, text messages, and/or email alerts about a wide range of important topics affecting their students’ safety and academic performance including:
- Emergency broadcasts
- School closings & delays
- Student attendance alerts
- School lunch balance alerts
- General announcements
Parents and staff need to create an online accounty through the secure Contact Manager website provided by SchoolMessenger.
Families will need to know Student ID numbers and make the authentication call using a phone number currently in the student information system.
Employees will need to know Employee ID numbers and make the authentication call using a phone number already in the finance database directory.
SchoolMessenger replaces EduLink and Nixle.
