The Halton District School Board is excited to announce a new feature called Teacher Messaging, available through SchoolMessenger at select schools.
Teacher Messaging is currently only available to families at Boyne Public School, P.L. Robertson Public School, Robert Little Public School, Iroquois Ridge High School, and Oakville Trafalgar High School. The roll-out of this new feature at these five HDSB schools is part of a soft-launch between now and November before the feature is launched to all schools in the Board.
Teachers can now communicate with parents/guardians through SchoolMessenger. At the secondary level, teachers can also use the feature to communicate with their students.
With Teacher Messaging, teachers can communicate with parents/guardians and secondary students in groups or individually. Messages are sent and received through the SchoolMessenger app or website and can be one or two-way communication. Documents, images/video and audio files can be attached in messages.
This new feature provides a secure method for teacher communication with parents/guardians and secondary students.
How to use Teacher Messaging
To use this feature, you will need a SchoolMessenger account. For instructions on how to register for SchoolMessenger, please visit the Absence Reporting - SchoolMessenger page on the HDSB website. If you need to update your contact information, please contact your child’s school.
