SchoolMessenger Text & Phone Alerts
If you are not receiving text messages, phone calls or email from SchoolMessenger via the SchoolTool communications system, please see the instructions below.
Parents and community members can receive e-mail, texts and phone calls through SchoolMessenger
The district utilizes a communications system known as SchoolMessenger to provide parents and community members with important announcements and timely alerts. There are alerts for general district news, weather-related closings, School Board news, Continuing Education, athletics and more.
Parents are connected to the system through the SchoolTool, while community members need to sign-up to receive messages.
Additional Information for Parents
Parents, if your contact information is updated in SchoolTool, you will be registered to receive emails. For texts, you should have received an automated message to which you had to respond “Y” to opt-in. You can check to see if you are registered by, again, responding “Y” to 67587.
If you think your contact information is out of date, email Student Name, Student Grade, Primary Contact #1, Email, Home Phone, Cell Phone, Primary Contact #2, Email, Home Phone, Cell Phone to email@example.com.
School Messenger syncs with SchoolTool on a daily basis so once SchoolTool is updated, it will take less than 24 hours for your number to be updated by SchoolMessenger.
Information and Sign-up Instructions for Community Members
We encourage community members to sign-up to receive messages from the district! If you do not currently have children in Mohonasen Schools, you will need to go through the registration process below.
