MAC OGS will now be using SchoolMessenger as a means of communication with our parents to report absentees, late arrivals and other important announcements. Learn about the application to stay well connected to your child’s school.

 

    All About School Messenger

SchoolMessenger is the trusted platform for parent and community engagement.

The SchoolMessenger app brings together rich teacher messaging, school notification, and more helpful features. This provides parents with a single app for all school communications, and gives school leaders more visibility into school- and district-wide messaging. Best of all, it’s available for free – as a mobile app for Apple and Android devices and as a Web-based application.
