Manage your Phone and Email Contacts with the new School Messenger App
The Fair Lawn School District utilizes an Emergency Broadcast system called SCHOOL MESSENGER to communicate with Staff and Parents/Guardians via phone, email and text. Messages include Snow Day/No School or Delayed Opening type “Emergency” calls and “General Calls” which are usually informational calls about school events.
Now you can download the School Messenger app which allows Staff and Parents/Guardians to edit their preferred contact for each type of message. You can also continue to manage your contact information by logging into School Messenger online. Contact Manager/InfoCenter is now simply: go.schoolmessenger.com
All Staff and Parents are strongly encouraged to set up an account and manage their contact data and preferences. By default, Emergency Calls will be sent to ALL phone and emails listed for Guardian 1 and Guardian 2 contacts for your student. General calls will be sent to Parent/Guardian HOME and CELL numbers, unless you indicate otherwise.
Download the School Messenger app from the (Apple) App Store or (Google) Play Store.
