School Messenger Update - January 2018

IMPORTANT UPDATE!

To address some technical issues our users were experiencing, as of January, 2018, we have been transferred to School Messenger's Canadian servers.

As a result, we are running our Opt-In campaign again. Parents and students will receive a text message from the short code 978-338 that says "Northern Lights Public Schools alerts. Reply Y or HELP. Std msg/data rates apply. Freq caries. schoolmessenger.ca/tm." To receive text messages from your school, you will need to text Y back to that number.

Parents who are using the School Messenger App will also need to log out of the app and then create a new account on the Canadian site. - go.schoolmessenger.ca. Please remember to use the same email address you have on file with your child's school so the information will sync properly. When you log back into the app, please select Canada as your location and enter your new log in information. See our detailed SCHOOL MESSENGER APP instructions or download our School Messenger Parent Guide for more information. Please note that you will need to set your Contact Preferences in the Preferences section of the app. This will determine how you will receive messages from your child's school and Northern Lights Public Schools.

Please note the School Messenger app has a new feature that automatically creates a conversation thread for each classroom your child is connected to. You will no longer have to enter a group code to participate in messaging with your child's teacher.
