Messenger allows staff and administrators to set up a chat with all guardians of a student, an individual guardian or school staff. Users can send single messages or bulk messages on grades and attendance. 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.
