Parent Notification System

SchoolMessenger 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 through email, text, and phone messages.

OPT-IN TEXT CAMPAIGN

All families should opt-in to receive text messages from the School District and your child’s school. Enter the code “67587” as the recipient and then type in “Y” or “YES” and hit send to allow text messages from the school district. 

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. In addition, we’ll be rolling out a teacher-imitated messaging program throughout the school year. This works like Remind and other messaging apps – allowing teachers to send direct messages to students and families with important updates and reminders. 

Once you’ve downloaded the blue-colored app (not gold), 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 email inbox to verify and authenticate your login. Please make sure and click on the link to finalize the process.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students attending CCMS and CCHS should also download the app and login using their student-issued email. Please make sure student cell phone numbers are added to StudentVue or updated if there’s been a change.

If a teacher uses SchoolMessenger to send classroom messages, there’s no need to join a group or do anything further. Once the teacher sends a message, parents and students can respond to those messages directly.

You’ll need to turn on notifications in the app. You can do that by selecting the three bars in the upper-left corner of the app. Then select settings and you’ll see a button called Push Notifications. Make sure to activate notifications so you’re notified when important messages arrive in the app.
