SchoolMessenger Account Setup Tutorial


SchoolMessenger Account Setup Tutorial

SchoolMessenger is the service that North Andover Public Schools uses for communication between school and home. You will receive messages about Snow Days, Attendance, Transportation, and messages from your principal via SchoolMessanger. When you setup a SchoolMessenger account you can choose to OPT-IN or OPT-OUT of certain communications. 

Here is how to create an account:

 1. Visit https://go.schoolmessenger.com/. Click the "Sign Up" link in the upper-right hand corner.  
 2. On the next page, you can create your account. YOU MUST use the SAME email address that we have on file for you. If you are not sure which email address that is, you can login to the PowerSchool Parent Portal to check. (If you are an employee, create an account with your NAPS email to modify staff communications.)

After creating your account, you will receive an email verification. You will also see a link to go to the login screen. You can then login with the Email/Password combination that you just set.
 
 3. Once you have logged in, you can opt-in or opt-out of various communications. First, Expand the menu by clicking on the three lines in the upper-left hand corner of the screen. Then select "Preferences"  
 4. On the next screen you will see a list of phone numbers and emails under "My contact information". This information is synced with PowerSchool and cannot be changed on this screen. (If something looks incorrect, please contact your school secretary.)

Scroll down to the next section titled "My message preferences" - you can click on any blue tile to modify the methods of communication for that communication category. 

 5. Once you have clicked on a communication category, you can check or un-check the different methods of contact.

For example, if you DO NOT want to receive phone calls for Snow Day announcements, you would UNCHECK the telephone number(s) we have on file for you under the "Snow Day" tile.

Make sure to click "Save" after changing your contact methods.
