SchoolMessenger- Instant Alert System

SchoolMessenger Alert System: Updating Parent Preferences

The Rossford School District's instant alert system, called SchoolMessenger, allows us to communicate with our parents.  The system is linked to our PowerSchool Parent Portal (the website where parents can access their student's information). 

If you would like to receive text messages from SchoolMessenger, or change your current settings for alert messages, please log in to the Parent Portal and click on the SchoolMessenger link on the bottom left side of the screen.  Please refer to the instructions below to modify your settings:


1. Log into your PowerSchool Parent Portal Account. (If you have not created your account, contact your student’s school for the Parent Portal letter). You will need a letter for each student.


2. Locate SchoolMessenger on the left navigation.

5. Your SchoolMessenger account will have the contact information we have in our PowerSchool system for you. If the information is not correct, please let us know.  We are pulling home phone, mother cell and father cell into SchoolMessenger.

Choose your preferences for contact by a phone call, email or text messages. Under Text “(Mobile)” please enter any numbers that you wish to receive text messages. We cannot automatically send text messages to your phone. By entering a number under “Text (Mobile)”, you are giving us permission to send text messages to that phone.

 “Click Save to All Contacts” for these preferences to be copied to all other students linked to your account then click “Save” when finished.
