SchoolMessenger Broadcast

St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute partners with SchoolMessenger, a California-based company that provides notification services for emergency broadcasts, parental outreach, and student attendance communications. 
Please note:
  • This requires NO registration by the recipient on the SchoolMessenger website.
  • All information and contact numbers are secure and strictly confidential, and are only used for the purposes described herein.
How it works:
  • Caller ID: The Caller ID will display 716.874.4024 (St. Joe's main phone number).
  • Live Answers: There is a short pause at the beginning of the message, usually a few seconds.
    • Answer your phone as you normally would - "hello" - and pause for the message to begin.
    • Multiple "hellos" will delay the message.
    • Inform all family members who may answer your phone of this process.
  • Answering Machines: The system will detect that your machine has answered and will play the recording to your machine.
  • Attendance: We will be using SchoolMessenger for daily attendance. You will be notified each day that your child missed a required number of classes.
    • To minimize these calls, make sure you inform the school when you KNOW your child will be late or absent to school on a given day.
  • Text Messaging: If you want to participate in the free service, simply send a text message of "Y" or "Yes" to 67587.
    • You can opt out of these messages the any time by simply replying to a message with "Stop".
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Laura Seiferth in the main office at 874.4024 ext. 104.
