About SchoolMessenger App
The SchoolMessenger App allows Whitesboro CSD to inform you about school-related emergencies, school closures, attendance, or other school-related issues.
Once you’ve created your account, we’ll automatically link the contact informtion associated with your email address. You can then:
- View your contact information and configure how you would like to receive notifications.
- Review the last 30 days-worth of messages.
You will find all of these messages in an easily-accessible inbox. If you are associated with students in different school buildings, all matching records will be linked to your account.
School Messenger and the TCPA
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (47 U.S.C. 227) is a law that was passed by the US Congress in 1991. This law places restrictions on telephone solicitations and the use of automated telephone equipment, protecting the public from receiving unwanted phone calls.
While schools are exempt from some of these restrictions, the preference configurations within the SchoolMessenger App allow you to set your consent state (“yes” or “no”) for each phone number associated with your account. With the exception of emergency calls, which cannot be exempted, any phone number whose consent state is set to “no” will not receive calls from SchoolMessenger.
