Messenger allows staff and administrators to set up bulk notifications to the guardians of a student. Parents do not have to register to receive messages. Cell contacts are pulled from the RCON and must have an authorization code of 01 or 02.
Where to Start
Having access to Messenger will allow you to see a speech bubble icon on every page in Classroom. When selected, the Classroom sidebar menu will be replaced by the Messenger menu. Click on the bubble again to return to the Classroom menu.
Classroom Messenger provides you the opportunity to compose notifications. To access this, click on the Kebab Menu (3 vertical dots) then select Compose Notification.
Once selected, Messenger will show you 3 options to choose from. Messenger allows you to limit your notifications to guardians by individual students, classrooms, and even the entire school.
Once the recipient type is selected, enter your message within the message window and click Send to post your message.
Messenger will ask you if you are sure you want to send this notification out, informing you of whom the notification is being sent to. Select Yes, send it! to post your message or, No, cancel! to decline.
