School Messenger

 SchoolMessenger promo banner. Text on page below.

SchoolMessenger is designed to automatically notify parents for reasons that affect the safety and academic performance of students. SchoolMessenger extends AMDSB’s existing community outreach efforts and emergency preparedness procedures, as well as inform parents of upcoming school events such as EQAO provincial testing, school council meetings, parent-teacher interviews, 40 hour community involvement opportunities, and more!

SchoolMessenger is intended to enhance our existing methods of communication – not replace them. We will only use SchoolMessenger to provide information to you that is timely, relevant and important.

The use of SchoolMessenger is available for use in all AMDSB schools.
