School Messenger

Don’t miss any news


Our board's SchoolMessenger communication system enables teachers as well as the school and school board to send email messages to parents. If you wish to receive all types of email messages, you must opt in. Otherwise, you will only receive emergency and attendance email messages. (Families with children in our school last year and who had previously provided Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation(CASL) consent will receive General messages.)


You can opt in by creating an account with SchoolMessenger and choosing your contact preferences for each type of message. (There is also a free SchoolMessenger App available for both iOS and Android based phones which enables you to receive notifications of school messages as well as set your contact preferences for each kind of message.) To receive any emails sent by the school, your preference must be set to “yes” for General Messages. To receive any emails that may be sent by your child's teacher, your preference must be set to “yes” for Teacher-to-Parent Messaging.


You can find instructions for creating your account and setting your preferences at ocsb.ca/schoolmessenger. If you have any questions about your SchoolMessenger account, email School.Messenger@ocsb.ca.
