School Messenger Updates

In preparation for the new school year, we will be migrating our parent and student contact data from one School Messenger communications server to another.  This is the information we use to phone, text and email you about school events, school closures, emergency information and bus cancellations.  When the transition happens a couple of items will be impacted and require action on your end. 

Parent Required Actions

1.  You will be required to opt-in again to a new short code to receive text messages.  The new code is 978338.  You can opt-in at anytime by texting Y to that number.  If you are successful, you will receive a confirmation text.  We will also be sending out a one-time reminder message that will prompt you to opt-in for text messaging.  This message will include Prairie Rose School Division in the body of the text.

2.  If you have been using the School Messenger app on your phone, you will need to set up a new account choosing Canada, instead of United States (which is the server we used previously).

Complete instructions can be found on the Prairie Rose website (prrd8.ca).

Our goal is to make the transition as smooth as possible and we appreciate your cooperation as we make the switch.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email communications@prrd8.ca.
