Emergency Messages, School Closures/Delays, Attendance Alerts, General Announcements
Pinkerton Academy utilizes the School Messenger service to send out alerts and automated messages. These messages include (but are not limited to) emergency announcements, school cancellations and delays, and attendance alerts. Messages are delivered via Phone, Email, Text, and Smartphone Push Notifications.
Students, Parents, Guardians, and Faculty are in control of how these messages are delivered. Using the links below you can login to School Messenger's InfoCenter to update your contact information and choose how you are notified. The contact information you provided for your student at the beginning of the school year has been pre-loaded. There is no need to re-enter or update that information. However, logging in to InfoCenter will allow you to add additional phone numbers, email addresses, and opt-in to receive text messages.
Please note: The contact information in InfoCenter is only used when sending alerts and automated messages. This information can be different from the information the school offices use when contacting you. For example; via InfoCenter you can add an additional phone number to receive school cancelation text messages. That phone number will only be used when sending cancellation messages and is not accessible and will not be used when the school offices contact you.
How to login to InfoCenter:
Logging in to InfoCenter will allow you to update your contact preferences. You can access InfoCenter via the link below or by navigating to https://infocenter.schoolmessenger.com; or by downloading the App for your smart phone.

|Emergency Announcement||These alerts will be sent out if there is an emergency that requires your immediate notification. For example: a school lockdown.|
|School Closure/Delay||School closure alerts will be sent when school opening is delayed or cancelled. For example: closure due to a snow storm|
|Attendance Notifications||Attendance messages are sent if your student is marked absent from school and the attendance offices have not received notification from you confirming the absence (Note: These messages won't be sent using this system until mid-December. Prior to that date you will receive a traditional phone call from a school office personnel).|
|General Announcements||General announcements will contain information about upcoming events at Pinkerton and other non-emergency messages. These messages will typically be delivered via e-mail only and will not have an accompanying voice message.|
