Washington Schools uses a notification system called School Messenger for weather and other school alerts. Parents who have correctly entered their information into PowerSchool (Contacts marked with the option "Lives With" or "Has Custody" will be available for the messages)   can be notified using email addresses and SMS text messages. 

SMS messages do require each cell phone number to "opt-in" in order to receive text messages. If you have not yet replied with a Y or YES to 67587, we encourage you to do so in order to receive SMS text messages. 

SMS Text Opt-In Flyer

If you would like to customize which messages you receive, users can manage their notification preferences by clicking on the Infocenter link on the left side when logged into their Powerschool Parent Account. Please see the attached sign up letter for instructions on how to log in to School Messenger and update your notification preferences. You will need to sign up with the email address you have entered in your Powerschool Parent Account to ensure all of your students are linked to your School Messenger login. 

School Messenger Sign Up Letter

Other individuals who would not have their information on file with the school can sign up using the following link. Again, this is not necessary for anyone already in our PowerSchool system.
