When You First Sign In

  • If you're accessing SchoolMessenger using a web browser, use the instructions below. Click here for mobile app instructions.

    After successfully logging in with a verified email, you should expect to see any messages that you’ve recently received for any Contacts – student, staff, and/or guardian records – associated with your account email address. You can navigate through your district-enabled options by using the left navigation bar.

    Your account information and contacts will be listed based on the information you have previously provided to Whitesboro CSD.

    2. Enter your phone number your school district has on file.
    3. Select an option to receive a verification code.
    4. Click Send Code. A verification code will be sent to the number you entered.

    • Try another number by clicking the “Try another phone number?” link.
    • Contact your school district to verify that you have the correct phone number and/or email address they have on file.
    • Make sure the location you chose at Sign Up is correct.
