This is the image for the news article titled Keep Connected with School Messenger CommunicateWe recognize the importance of keeping connected with your child's school.

All of our BGCDSB schools are now using the SchoolMessenger communication platform, Communicate, to send automated phone calls and emails to parents. We use this system for emergencies, school updates, newsletters, and Board-wide events, and in some cases attendance. Your account is a free and easy way to keep connected.

If your child is registered in a BGCDSB school, then you are already set up to receive emergency and attendance messages by phone or email. However, you will want to sign up to SchoolMessenger and set your notification preferences. Tell us what news you would like to receive and how you want to be notified. 

There is also a free SchoolMessenger App available for both iOS and Android based phones which enables you to receive notifications of school messages. Download the App, set your notification preferences, and move the App to your phone's home screen for easy access!
