Do you want your phone to wake you up on snow days? If not, make sure you set your SchoolMessenger preferences accordingly. Forest Hills Public Schools uses a communication system called SchoolMessenger to notify families who have students enrolled in school in the district of school closings or delays due to inclement weather. Usually, the district uses the text and email option of this notification system. However, there are times when the district also uses the phone call option. SchoolMessenger is only available to enrolled families and is accessed by parents/guardians logging into PowerSchool. Before winter weather hits, parents/guardians are encouraged to log into PowerSchool and check their SchoolMessenger preferences. In order to receive SchoolMessenger texts from FHPS, families must opt in by texting “YES,” to 67587. Please note, FHPS is not responsible for text message charges people may incur by opting in to this service. Families can repeat the opt-in process for any other wireless numbers they wish to include, only if these numbers are on file with the school. Please remember, always contact your child’s school to update your phone number and email contact information if or when a change occurs. If you have questions about SchoolMessenger and/or how to log into PowerSchool, contact your school’s secretary. If you still have questions pertaining to SchoolMessenger, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
