Cassopolis Public Schools
SchoolMessenger System

Keeping parents informed and involved helps to assure student safety and improve student success. With today’s on-the-go lifestyles, it has become more difficult for schools to reach families quickly and effectively. This is why our school has decided to implement a system called SchoolMessenger.

SchoolMessenger is an essential tool for notification and communication. The system can be used to notify you of a SCHOOL CLOSING due to inclement weather. It’s an equally effective way to keep you informed of everyday activities, such as event times and locations as well as schedule changes. When a need arises, school officials can use SchoolMessenger to deliver a single, clear message to the students’parents or guardians by telephone, cell phone, e-mail, pager, or PDA in any combination.
