School Messenger

SchoolMessenger LogoBGCDSB staff use the SchoolMessenger platform to communicate with our families.  Any school wide messages will be sent by email and text ie Principal messages, bus cancellations, spirit days.  Teachers may also communicate with you regarding classroom specific details via text ie. due dates, field trips, special classroom activities.  Note: At this time, any text communication is one-way.  
If you have a child starting at St. Anthony's you will automatically be added to our SchoolMessenger list.  Please provide the email address(es) and cell phone numbers that you and/or your partner would like to use to receive communication.  Communication will begin within 24 hours of your child starting school and becoming an "active" student in our system.
It is a good idea to set up an account so that you can manage your notification preferences to make sure you are signed up for your preferred method of contact ie. email, text, or both. For instructions on signing up or updating your preferences, view the Parent Portal SchoolMessenger Instructions below.  

If you have checked your preferences but are not receiving email notifications, it may be because the emails are going to your spam folder. You can find instructions for removing SchoolMessenger from your spam folder below. If you continue to experience problems ie. lack of weekly communication,  please contact the school for assistance. Thank you.
