SchoolMessenger – We have been testing a new communication system called “SchoolMessenger” and are ready to roll it out for wider use.  This system is synced with PowerSchool and will be utilized for all grades Preschool-8th as well as Kids Care.  All families are able to update their information in the parent portal for PowerSchool or by letting us know by calling the school office.  At this time we plan on using it for emergencies such as weather related events and weekly general communications.  This system allows you to receive a text message in emergencies if you so choose.  Click here for more information on the SMS (text) option for SchoolMessenger.
