Forest Hills Public School District is currently utilizing a notification system that will be used to broadcast all school closings, delays, and emergency situations to all of our FHPS families that have students enrolled in the district.
SchoolMessenger® utilizes the family information stored on file to send automated phone calls, SMS text messages, and email messages.
Customize Contact Preferences
It is recommended that you customize your contact preferences, or more specifically tell our computer system HOW you want to receive messages, via phone call, email or text message.
- Simply log in to your ParentPortal account and select the “SchoolMessenger” option on the left side of the screen.
- Click the Contacts tab in the top navigation bar and click Edit to modify the notifications preferences for each member of your family. Make sure to save your preferences for each family member at the bottom of the SchoolMessenger page.
- If you need to set up a ParentPortal account, please send an email to email@example.com with your child’s name and the best phone number to contact. You may also call the ParentPortal Help Line at (616) 493-8550.
If you have any questions concerning the usage of SchoolMessenger or need to update your contact information within our database, please speak with the office staff in your building.
Any questions or concerns regarding ParentPortal or SchoolMessenger should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or the ParentPortal Help Line at (616) 493-8550.
SMS Text Messages
In addition to phone and email notifications sent via SchoolMessenger, we offer a SMS text message notification service to Forest Hills families that have students enrolled in the district.
Please contact your building secretaries to ensure you have your cell phone number on file.
Please note, although this is a provided service, the District is not responsible for any text message charges that you may incur by opting-in to this service. Please check with your wireless provider for specific details about any possible charges.
