TVDSB Has New App: SchoolMessenger

The Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB) have launched a new app that will allow parents to report when their child is going to be absent, through a smartphone.

On top of being able to call the toll free number at 1-844-305-3756, and using the already existing SchoolMessenger Attendance Reporting System, parents can now also download the appropriate version of the app for their smartphone instead:

App Store: SchoolMessenger

Google Play: SchoolMessenger

The app not only allows you to report absences, but “gives busy parents, students, and staff a powerful way to stay engaged with their school or district, and connect to each other.”

App Features:

– Easy-to-read inbox that captures all SchoolMessenger notifications, and now two-way teacher-parent-student messages (if enabled by school or district)
– Scrollable notification view to review all phone, email, and text content in a single place
– Detailed preference control allows adjusting notification settings
– Push notifications are available for alerts when school or district sends a message

Requirements:
– For notifications, school or district has SchoolMessenger notification service subscription with SchoolMessenger app enabled
– For notifications, valid email address on file with your school or district
– WiFi or data plan for internet access
– Android 4.4 or higher
