Give your consent to stay connected with your child’s school

We are looking forward to welcoming your child at one of our OCSB schools.

Don’t miss any news

Our Board and schools use the SchoolMessenger communication platform to send automated phone calls and emails to parents. We use this system for attendance and emergency messages, as well as general messages including school updates and newsletters.

We want to ensure that you stay connected with your child’s school and the OCSB throughout the coming school year. If you wish to receive all types of email messages sent by your child’s school, you must provide your consent. Otherwise, we will only send you emergency and attendance email messages.

You can provide consent 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.

Create your SchoolMessenger account

  1. Go to for instructions on how to create your account.

  2. Create your account using the email address you provided when you registered your child for school. Once your registration information has been entered into our student information system, your child(ren)’s name(s) will appear in the contact section of the account. If you do not see any contacts listed, please check back in a couple of weeks.

  3. Once the account has been created and you can see your child(ren)’s names listed, choose your contact preferences for each type of message.
