New communication tool for parents and guardians; accounts must be activated

Salisbury Township School District has changed the way they contact parents and guardians by contracting with SchoolMessenger Notification System.

At the Sept. 19 school board meeting, it was announced SchoolMessenger has replaced SchoolReach.

Assistant Superintendent Dr. Randy Ziegenfuss said the new company will provide better service and the district saved $1,000 by contracting with SchoolMessenger.

This system will provide communication to parents and staff members regarding school closings/delays, school emergencies, attendance and general activities.

Parents were given a letter last week to register with SchoolMessenger to control the ways they are contacted.

The contact manager allows the user to choose the type of messages received and the method of delivery including various telephone numbers and email addresses.

Once registered, the contact manager works like a mailbox, providing a place to review missed messages.

The letter was sent home Sept. 10 with their student's identification number and activation code.

Parents and guardians should call the office of the school their student attends if a letter was not received.
