Greenfield Public Schools Expands its Commitment to Communication Outreach With School Messenger!

We are so excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance district communication by allowing us to deliver important information for parental outreach, emergency broadcasts, student attendance alerts and other significant communications

The new service is called School Messenger (SchoolMessenger) and it’s designed to notify parents and guardians automatically for alerts that impact the safety and academic performance of students, extending the district’s existing community outreach efforts and emergency preparedness procedures. It also will be used by our schools to inform parents/guardians of upcoming school events such as statewide testing, parent conferences, and upcoming field trips.

SchoolMessenger will not replace current school communication methods. Principals will still be accessible for live visits and will continue to communicate via current methods including paper-based notifications. The district’s implementation of SchoolMessenger is intended to extend its commitment to remain personally connected with parents/guardian by offering additional and timely communications. The new system even allows us to deliver important information via SMS text messaging should Parents/Guardians indicate they wish to receive text messages on their cell phones.
