• Dear Faculty:

     
    As you know, the West Orange Public Schools uses a notification system called School Messenger to inform parents and district employees about emergencies, schools closings/delays, attendance, and other important district announcements.
     
    We are happy to announce that SchoolMessenger has updated their system, making it easier for staff to log into the new SchoolMessenger App using their district email as the username. Once you activate your account, you will be able to set notification preferences (voice, email, text messages) to receive emergency and general announcements using a computer or an app on your phone. 
     
    The username to log into the SchoolMessenger App is associated with your @westorangeschools.org email address. 
    Your contact information and primary phone number that was provided to Human Resources and your @westorangeschools.org email address have been uploaded into the new SchoolMessenger system. 
     
    Please read the directions below to log in/activate your new SchoolMessenger App account and confirm that your primary contact information is correct. Once you log into the system and confirm your primary contact information, you will have the option to add additional contact information (phone, cell, and email addresses) and set your communication preferences. 
     
    For your reference, I am also attaching to this email a more comprehensive School Message App Staff Users Guide that includes directions for activating your account and setting your preferences.
     
    What if I already have a SchoolMessenger account using the @westorangeschools.org email address?
