SchoolMessenger is the name of the system we use to call you when (among other things) there is a school closure or delay due to adverse weather conditions. What you might not know is how we get your phone number into SchoolMessenger in the first place. This is accomplished by entering your data into PowerSchool first - it is then exported and sent to SchoolMessenger on a daily basis.

Since the majority of our staff and faculty have either a PowerSchool Admin or PowerTeacher account, we've been able to create an area where you can maintain your own SchoolMessenger contact information. You can make changes as often as you'd like, whenever it's convenient for you!

Please follow the steps outlined below to view your current information, or to make changes.

  1. Log into Your PowerSchool Admin, or PowerTeacher Account.

  2. Click the 'Personalize' link, located on the left side of the page.

  3. Click the 'SchoolMessenger' Link.

  4. On this page, you can enter up to three phone numbers, and two personal email addresses where you would like notifications to be delivered. After making modifications, be sure to click the Submit button.

Your changes go into effect beginning the day AFTER you've made your updates.

If you do not have a PowerSchool Admin or PowerTeacher account, please ask the building secretary for help. They will be able to update your information for you. If you are unable to get in touch with the building secretary, you may also contact the receptionist at the District Office.

Please note, changing your contact information for SchoolMessenger is NOT the same as making changes to your contact information for Human Resources or Payroll. If you need to update your information for either of these offices, please continue to follow previously established procedures.
