SchoolMessenger Registration Will Return
in the Fall of 2018!
**You MUST complete the online registration form in order to receive text alerts from our school district! Internet Explorer Users: please use Chrome, Safari, or Firefox to access and complete the registration. Internet Explorer does not currently work with our registration survey. We are working to resolve this issue ASAP. This year, we have added new options for you to choose which building-level alerts you receive from our district (all, Elementary, Middle School, and/or High School). Please read through the survey carefully as you complete it!
**IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN RECEIVING THE RECENT TEXT ALERTS FOR SCHOOL CLOSINGS AND TWO-HOUR DELAYS, text YES to the number 67587. This will "opt-in" your registration. (Please note that this is a new number and is different than the number used to opt-in last school year.)
- In order to receive these text messages, you must fully complete the registration form online. Click on the link at the top of this page to access the online registration form.
- After you complete the registration form, please allow approximately 1-2 school days for your registration to become active in the School Messenger system. Completing the online registration form does not automatically place you into the system. Your information must be manually uploaded before you receive text alerts. If you register over the weekend, please allow additional time for your information to be uploaded into the system.
- Please note that school cancellations, delays, etc. are also posted on our District homepage, District Twitter, and on various local TV and radio stations.
Information About SchoolMessenger Notification SystemIn order to improve communication between parents and school, the Punxsutawney Area School District has adopted SchoolMessenger as our telephone notification system. The District will use it for school delay and closing notifications; however, it may also be used for attendance and other important emergency notification events.
The service will call all phone numbers in our selected contact lists and will deliver a voice message or text message generated by the system.
Please make every effort to provide the school with current and accurate phone information any time there is a change to ensure that you do not miss important information.
In dealing with cell phones, answering machines, and automated systems, there will certainly be some glitches. Parents, students, and staff should not rely on SchoolMessenger as the only means of notification about school closings and delays. These types of notifications will also be made through local radio stations, Comcast channel 18, the district web page, and the district's Twitter account.
This system is not meant to be a substitute for personal contact with your child’s school. However, to register to receive notifications through SchoolMessenger, please complete the registration survey by clicking on the link at the top of this page.
