Wonderful App

As a school Data Manager and a parent, I highly recommend this app for school employees and parents. This app is wonderful and works extremely well. It is easy to read and use. It corrals all of the phone messages, SMS messages, and emails into one convenient location in chronological order. Missed a schoolwide phone blast? Phone messages are recordings in the app that you can listen to. Deleted a school SMS message and wish you had not? It's in the app. Can't find the schoolwide email from last week? It's in the app. Wrote a school event down on your paper calendar but you are out and about and need the details? It's in the app. Thank you, SchoolMessenger, for dropping all schoolwide messages in one place and making them easy to locate, read, store, and delete. All parents should have is app on their phone.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a great review. We are working hard on the next version of the app to make it even more valuable for parents.

I am very frustrated with this app. I downloaded it so that the notifications for two hour delays and cancellations can be sent directly to my phone. I was getting tired of having my mom always have to tell me. I logged into the app pretty easily but then I looked at the phone number that it said that it would send the messages to, and it was my moms! This is frustrating to me because I want to be able to have the notifications on my Lock Screen so I can easily see if there is a delay or cancellation. Yes, I can still go into the app, but things still get sent to my moms phone number instead of mine. I don’t want to have to go into the app and go through all the messages every time that I want to see if there is a delay. I have already tried changing the phone number in contacts and in the profile but for some reason it doesn’t want me to change it! It’s weird because my mom has the app on her phone and I really hope that it doesn’t send her double notifications. I might have to delete the app if so. Please help!!!

Thanks for your note and apologies for the frustration. All contact information comes directly from the school. If you need additional contact points in the app I would suggest reaching out to the school and get them added to your contact record.

Use Remind Instead ,


If I could give zero stars I would. This app is not conducive to a parent or a teacher’s needs. As an educator, it will not allow me to delete messages. Sending a message to families is a multi step process that can be aggravating to deal with especially if one is in a hurry. Notifications do not go through properly. (Either not at all or 12 notifications for one message) There is no way for a parent to begin a message to me through this app. They are forced to reply to an announcement I have made and most parents have opted out for fear of everyone seeing their replies (even though I make it private). Parents are not getting messages until a day or two later. My school district has had to send out MULTIPLE test messages in the middle of the year to ensure everyone is receiving the district’s messages. There are some serious functionality issues with this app. School messenger should contact Remind Me and take notes. If our district hadn’t taken on this app I would still be using Remind for my classroom and families. Good luck to those of you who have download this horrible app.
