Opt-In Notifications

SouthWest Metro may need to send messages to students, parents, and staff in the event of a weather related closure or an emergency. One way you can receive notifications is through the School Messenger system.

Ensure your contact information is current by logging into ParentVUE or StudentVUE or by contacting your school’s Administrative Assistant.

Log in to schoolmessenger.com/start to create or sign in to your account. You must use the email address on file with the school.

Use the online interface to choose your notification preferences depending on the type of message that is sent. For example, you can choose to receive an email for Weather, or a phone call for Emergencies.

Once your contact information is confirmed, you can opt-in to receive text messages as well. To receive text message notifications of any kind, you must text “Yes” to 68453.
