New school messaging system

Dear parents/guardians

The Ottawa Catholic School Board will soon begin using a new communication platform called SchoolMessenger. It allows schools, teachers and the school board to send phone and email messages to parents using the contact information that parents have already shared with the school.


Our school will begin using SchoolMessenger next week, May 22-25.


What’s new?

The difference between SchoolMessenger and our current platform is that SchoolMessenger allows parents to select their contact preferences (contact by phone, email, or both) for different types of messages.


What parents need to do


Phone messages

Parents can expect to receive one or more phone messages during the week. There should be no change from the way our phone messages are currently delivered. Please inform the school if you do not receive a phone message by the end of next week.


Email messages

Email messages will only be sent to those parents who have an email address on file at the school. The first email message sent using School Messenger will provide instructions on how to create a parent account and select your notification preferences. Please inform the school if  you do not receive an email message with this information by the end of next week.


If you have any questions or concerns about the new platform, please contact the school.
