REMINDER: School Messenger 01/09/22

January 9, 2022


Good afternoon, 

As you are aware, the Hollidaysburg Area School District uses the School Messenger system to alert parents and staff through email, text, and voice messages about district/school news including delays and cancellations.  District administration received feedback that individuals did not receive the 2-hour delay phone message that was sent this past Friday. 

As a reminder, in order to receive  alerts via voice, text, or email, it is imperative that your contact information including email, home and/or mobile phone number(s) are up to date in both Infinite Campus and School Messenger

Every evening, School Messenger syncs with Infinite Campus, and the contact information from the “Household” section transfers to School Messenger.  If you have an email, home and/or mobile phone number that is no longer in use or is incorrectly listed in Infinite Campus, please be sure to revise this information. 

If you would like to set up a School Messenger account and/or update your School Messenger preferences, please follow the instructions attached. 

School Messenger Steps To Set Up An Account & Update Preferences 

There are five types of messages the district releases via School Messenger: General, Weather/School Cancelation, Weather/School Delay, Non-School Hours Emergency, School Hours Emergency. Please be sure your preferences are marked accordingly in School Messenger to receive these types of notifications.

Thank you, 

HASD Administration
