Our school uses an automated School Messenger system to alert parents and guardians to important topics such as student absences and other important announcements and information that need to be communicated in a timely manner. This communication may come in the form of a phone call and/or email.
For safety reasons, our School Messenger system automatically sends a message to parents when their child is marked absent for a class IF the parent has not notified the office of the absence in advance. To avoid receiving messages regarding student absences, please contact the office in advance to have it excused.
School Messenger is also used to inform parents via pre-recorded announcements. These typically are general information such as school status updates, permission form reminders, event or meeting invitations, etc.
Communication During an Emergency
During an emergency, we will make every effort to contact parents directly. Depending on the emergency, it may not be possible to send out information until after the incident has ended. In this case, School Messenger may be part of our school emergency response.
