School Messenger Alerts

Receive School Alerts The Way You Choose

To make sure that you’re receiving alerts in the ways that work best for you, Battle River School Division has two methods to communicate with you:

Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more. Once registered as a parent you will receive a text message from 978338 and in order to participate in this free service* you just reply to the text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number: 978338.  The test message will look like the following:

"Battle River Regional Division messages. Reply Y to confirm, HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. Msg freq varies.".

You can also opt out at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

If you missed the text message you can just send a message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number: 978338.
