SchoolMessenger Text Message Alerts

December 05, 2019


On December 3, 2019, the North Vancouver School District turned on Text Message Alerts (or SMS alerts) for SchoolMessenger. This feature has only been enabled for emergency notifications. All parents who have a cellphone on file with the school should have received the text message below on December 3rd when the system was activated:

North Vancouver School District 44 messages. Reply Y to confirm, HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. Msg freq varies.

If you wish to receive emergency notifications from the school or school district, such as a school closure due to a power outage or severe weather, you need to opt in by replying with ‘Y’. If you did not receive the text message on December 3rd, it means we do not have your cellphone number on file. Please contact your school to add your cellphone number.
