After a successful update,
SchoolMessenger and Tyler SIS now sync on a daily basis. This means that if you change a contact phone number or email address in Tyler, SchoolMessenger will be updated automatically with that new information the following day.
If you wish to add additional phone numbers into SchoolMessenger that are not listed in Tyler, or opt-in for text messages and emails,
you will need to create a new SchoolMessenger account, as all previous accounts were deactivated during the sync. Your new account allows you to set your communication preferences for calls, emails, and texts. You are also able to add additional phone numbers and email addresses. If you don’t create an account, you’ll still get calls from SchoolMessenger on the numbers imported by Tyler.
We will be conducting a District-wide test notification with the new contacts in SchoolMessenger during the evening of Monday, December 3. It is important to note that this test will utilize the preferences you have set under the School Delay/Closing category in SchoolMessenger (see the screenshot below). Please pay attention to the phone numbers and email addresses you receive the notification at and make any alterations to your preferences (phone call/text/email options) within your new SchoolMessenger account.
