We are excited to announce that the Spotswood School District has partnered with School Messenger as our new communication system. Receiving feedback on Sangha, our current communication platform, from parents, staff, and our communities, we believe that School Messenger will address the issues that have been identified and improve our ability to share district news and safety information clearly and promptly.
School Messenger, like our past system, uses email, text messages, and phone calls to distribute information to our educational community; an app is also available for download. It will also connect with our existing contact database stored in the Genesis Parent Portal. At any time, parents can simply update contact information in Parent Portal that will be synced in School Messenger within 24 hours. Please visit Genesis Parent Portal for a reminder/information on how to update your contact information.
As we launch School Messenger this week, you will receive a few email communications from the district introducing the service. Due to new federal regulations regarding mass messaging, one of these communications will explain the need to opt-in to the text messaging service should you desire to be contacted in that manner.
Should you need assistance or have any questions during this transition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
