What is SchoolMessenger?

  • SchoolMessenger is Radnor Township School District’s phone, email and text message alert system used to notify parents/guardians and staff members about urgent matters such as school closings/delays and distribute information about other timely issues and events.
     
    SchoolMessenger contacts parents/guardians using the data located in Home Access Center (HAC) and contacts staff members using the data located in the Employee Web Portal. The SchoolMessenger system syncs with HAC and the Employee Web Portal every business day to retrieve the most current contact data from each database.

Parents/Guardians

  • Each parent/guardian can make sure his/her contact data is current in his/her Home Access Center account by following these directions.

    Note: Home Access Center questions or concerns, including user name and password inquiries and creating a new account for a parent/guardian, should be directed to the main office of your school.

Staff Members
