Staying Informed

SchoolMessenger for Notifications

Pearl River School District uses the SchoolMessenger notification system to communicate important broadcasts such as school closings or other emergency situations by phone, email and text messages.  PRSD also uses this system to send emails and texts pertaining to general district and school information and events.  Parents are automatically enrolled to receive phone calls and emails using their contact data in their eSD Parent Portal account.  The majority of our communications are through email.  If you are not receiving emails from PRSD or your child's school, your contact information is not current in your Parent Portal!

Wireless carriers require verification that a parent has agreed (opt-in) to receive SMS (text) messages on their cell phone.  SchoolMessenger will send a verification code to a parent's cell phone which they must reply with a 'Y'.  If a parent does not reply, they will not receive text messages from Pearl River School District.   If a parent is unsure if they have opted-in, they can text 'Y' to short code 67587.

Please login to your Parent Portal account to ensure all of your contact information is accurate.  Please contact your child(ren)'s school(s) if you require any changes. 

If you have a question or issue regarding SchoolMessenger, such as not receiving emails, contact our Community Services Office at 845-620-3918.
