School Messenger – Emergency Notifications

USD 489 will be using School Messenger through Power School this year as the district’s emergency notification system.  Those who were enrolled in last year’s service through School Connects Notify will no longer receive emergency notifications from USD 489 via email or phone without opting into the new service.  Please see the pictures below for instructions on opting into the new service.  If you run into any issues after attempting to opt-into the service via text message, please email Amy Arnhold at with your phone number, email address, and the school(s) you wish to receive notifications for during the 2018-2019 school year.
