Dear Parents & Guardians:

We need to get your permission to continue calling you with our School Messenger automated notification system for non-emergency school situations.  New FCC requirements for automated calling has made this change necessary.

You can easily give your permission by visiting the School Messenger Info Center website at https://schoolmessenger.com/start to sign in or create an account by clicking “Sign Up” on the top right menu.

Once you’ve signed in, you can choose how you want to be contacted based on the category of message. You will also be able to listen to and read messages from the school for the previous 30 days, so you don’t miss a thing. You can also sign in to change your preferences at any time.

You need to opt in by September 30, 2016. If you do not give us permission by that date, we will no longer be able to use our automated notification system to contact you for non-emergency situations.

Non-emergency categories include Announcements (both division-wide and school-level), Food Services (low-balance notices), and Late Buses.

You will continue to receive automated calls related to Student Attendance, School-Hour Emergencies, and Non-School-Hour Emergencies, which typically relate to school closings and delays.
