SchoolMessenger is the communication tool Hopkinton Public Schools is using to send emergency calls and emails for general news and announcements.
Guardians will need to create an account and login to SchoolMessenger to help complete the single sign process between PowerSchool and to set personal preferences within your SchoolMessenger account. Please note that the account setup automatically allows for the sending of emergency messages, yet in order to receive other messages (General messages, non-emergencies, etc.) you must define how you want to receive those messages in School Messenger in order to receive non-emergency messages from the schools.
Parents will have access to SchoolMessenger via the web portal or the mobile app. These tools will allow parents to add additional emails or phone number and set preferences. Just remember if you add additional emails or phone numbers in SchoolMessenger they do not sync back to PowerSchool. If you miss a message at some point in your inbox you can use the SchoolMessenger app or website to view previously sent messages organized by school and by category.
Each year the school district allows parents to update contact information via the returning registration process that opens in August, if you need to change your contact information after that process closes in October please contact the individual schools. A change in your permanent address requires you to reach out to the schools to make the update.
