School Messenger Parent Notification System

Crook County School District is excited to introduce a new communications tool that will enhance our ability to stay connected with our valued families. This new platform is called SchoolMessenger. It will allow each of our schools and the District Office to communicate important messages with you through email, text, and phone messages.

OPT-IN TEXT CAMPAIGN

Federal rules require us to launch an opt-in campaign for text messages. On Wednesday, September 8th, the District Office will send out instructions to all families. You’ll enter a six-digit code as the recipient and then type in “Y” and hit send to allow text messages from the school district. We will send out several reminders through the month of September to ensure all families have the chance to opt-in. We will send instructions and links to tutorial videos.

SCHOOLMESSENGER MOBILE APP

SchoolMessenger also includes a mobile app that allows families to manage all messages in one location. You’ll be able to see emails, texts, and even listen to voice messages in the app. Most importantly, your child’s teachers will use this tool to send updates, reminders, and communicate with you more effectively and efficiently. For older students with smartphones, teachers will use SchoolMessenger in place of other apps like Remind. This means if your student has a phone, they will also need to download the app.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, use the email associated with your ParentVue or StudentVue accounts. Then choose a password that is at least 6 characters long and uses the following:

  • 1 Uppercase letter
  • 1 Lowercase letter

  • 1 Number

You’ll then receive an email in your inbox to verify and authenticate your login. Please make sure and click on the link to finalize the process. Once that’s complete, you are ready to use the SchoolMessenger App!

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are still working on uploading teacher class lists and rosters, so you may not see your child’s teacher or classes in the app until the first week of school. However, all other messages coming from your child’s school or the District Office will appear in the messages section. Be on the lookout for additional information and tutorial videos about the new app and how to use its features.
