School Messenger Information


Heyworth School District utilizes SchoolMessenger for the vast majority of its communications with parents, faculty and staff.




You can expect messages in the form of phone calls, emails and text messages from the SchoolMessenger system. There will still be some automated messages from skyward, however the majority of school correspondence will be sent via the SchoolMessenger system moving forward.

The first SchoolMessenger message you will receive will be an email with an opt-in/opt-out attachment explaining how family members can receive text messages from SchoolMessenger when they are broadcasted.
