SchoolMessenger is the new Parent Notification System Falconer Central School District will be using for this school year. If the School Building Administator of your child's school feels there is a need to notify parents of an announcement or a situation, parents and contacts will be contacted by a voice call to the home telephone number we have listed in PowerSchool. This may be a cell number or a land line. Parents with current email addresses in PowerSchool will also be notified by email. If you would like to receive a text message either in addition to or instead of a voice call, you must OPT IN to receive text messages. An instruction sheet is attached at the bottom of this message.
Messages will be sent to the first contact, second contact, and the third contact. Traditionally in PowerSchool the first and second contacts are the adults who live with the child. The third contact listed is the non-custodial or joint-custodial parent of the child. Please be sure to notify your child's building secretary with any updates to notification information.
In order to receive text messages to your device, you must Opt In to the service. Just text "Yes" or "Optin" to the short code 68453. You may "Opt Out" at any time- just reply with STOP to any message or HELP if you need assistance
Automated messages regarding student absences and low lunch balances will also be sent. If your child brings lunch daily and you do not wish to receive low lunch balance notifications, you may contact Mrs. Hedstrand in the Guidance office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can opt out of lunch balance alerts.
If you do not wish to receive student absent alerts, please be sure to contact your child's building attendance office and inform them when your child will not be in school.
Please contact Mrs. Hedstrand if you have any questions.
