Clearview Public Schools to release phone application

SchoolMessenger app is expected to launch sometime in April

Parents with children in the Clearview school division will soon have a phone application they can download to keep in touch with the school.

The SchoolMessenger app is expected to go live sometime in April, and is currently being tested out by staff in a soft launch.

Once the app is installed, parents can adjust their settings on how the school communicates with them, whether through phone, text or email.

This will give you the option to set numbers for call outs and notifications for attendance, emergencies, surveys and general information.

The app is may also sync bus routes and school calendar information to your phone in the future.

Some schools within the division are already using the SchoolMessenger app, while others are using Remind.

During the March 20 school board meeting, Associate Superintendent Peter Neale said the division would like to see all schools on the SchoolMessenger application for the 2018-19 school year.
