BVSD uses SchoolMessenger to send important email and phone messages to parents and staff.
SchoolMessenger gets its contact information directly from Infinite Campus for students and from Lawson for employees. Parents/guardians and employees should make sure their contact information is current.
- School staff handle updates to contact information related to student records in Infinite Campus, so parents who need to update their phone numbers and/or email addresses for our message system should start by contacting their child's school.
- Employees need to notify Human Resources about any updates to their contact information.
Contact Manager is an optional, free feature of SchoolMessenger
Once all the contact information in the databases is correct, parents and staff can go into Contact Manager to set preferences for how they receive communications sent through the SchoolMessenger system. Parents and staff may enter up to two additional email addresses into their Contact Manager accounts AND they can enter up to five cell phone numbers in the SMS section of Contact Manager to start getting text messages, if they choose. There is no extra charge for this service beyond whatever fees one pays to his or her phone service provider for their text messaging option.
