Families: Log into PowerSchool Today to Set Your SchoolMessenger Preferences

In December, we successfully tested our new communication system with SchoolMessenger. The next step is for our students’ families to CUSTOMIZE how you receive important information from your school district, via text, phone or email notification(s). You must set up your preferences or you’ll automatically receive phone call messages.  Please note, that when you update your preferences, it doesn’t mean that you will immediately start receiving SchoolMessenger messages. We will allow FHPS families ample time to set up their preferences before sending out SchoolMessenger notifications.

In addition, you can also receive urgent alerts and other important information via SMS text messaging. In order to participate, you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your wireless device. Simply text “YES” to the number 68453.
