Our schools use the SchoolMessenger communication platform to send automated phone calls and emails to parents. We use this system for attendance and emergency messages, as well as for general messages including newsletters and school updates.
Opt in to receive emails
To receive all types of email messages, you must opt in. Otherwise, we will only send you emergency and attendance email messages. (Families with children in our Board since 2017 and who had previously provided Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation(CASL) consent will receive General messages.)
You can opt in by creating an account with SchoolMessenger and choosing your contact preferences for each type of message. To receive any emails sent by the school, your preference must be set to “yes” for General Messages. To receive any emails that may be sent by your child's teacher, your preference must be set to “yes” for Teacher-to-Parent Messaging.
