The Marblehead Public School system has adopted the SchoolMessenger Notification Service to enhance school-to-home communication. This service allows Superintendent Maryann Perry and district administrators to send a voice, email and/or text message to designated contacts for families. Read "What you need to know about receiving SchoolMessenger calls" for more information.
The majority of the broadcasts will be Non-Emergency in nature. Only the Superintendent would initiate an Emergency Broadcast. All non-emergency messages may be sent to two phone numbers and two email addresses that parents/guardians have designated as 'Primary'. Emergency broadcasts would be sent to additional phone numbers and email addresses, if the parents/guardians have provided them. Duplicate numbers/addresses are flagged by the system to eliminate repeat calls. Read "Emergency Card Update Instructions" for additional details.
District administrators may utilize SchoolMessenger for:
- District-wide safety and security issues
