SchoolMessenger is a communication suite used by Brooklyn Elementary for attendance reporting and to notify parents of unexcused absences.
Emergency notifications (e.g. snow closure) are also broadcast to parents/guardians using SchoolMessenger. Instructions for opting-in to receive SMS text messages from SD71 can be found below.
An app is also available to parents/guardians that can be voluntarily installed to mobile devices allowing messages to be received on a mobile device. Instructions for how to sign-up, download and configure the app on your mobile device, as well as accessing the platform on the web, can be found below:
