The UGDSB is now using an App called School Messenger. This App lets parents receive notifications from the school office AND from individual teachers. You can find out about field trips, important events, and urgent news. Due to privacy concerns, schools are no longer allowed to use Remind, SeeSaw, or any other non-board approved service. See below for sign-up instructions.

We are asking ALL parents to sign up for the SchoolMessenger communication app that is being supported throughout the Upper Grand District School Board.  YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO SIGN UP ONCE. Each school year, your account will be connected to your child’s new classroom teacher.

STEP 1: Go to to download the SchoolMessenger mobile app for your devices.  You may register using the desktop version or on the App.

STEP 2: Click

STEP 3:  Register using your primary email address and a secure password of your choice.

STEP 4: Check your email for a verification message. Click on the link in the message.


CONFIRM OR ADD your PHONE NUMBER. This number must match the school’s records for your home contact information.  

Option A: CONFIRM - If your phone number already appears in SchoolMessenger, simply select “yes” and SAVE. Go to Step 6.

Option B: ADD - If you get a message saying “Your Email Address isn’t connected to any SchoolMessenger records”….please click on Search for contacts by Phone. Then add the phone number that is the STUDENT’S HOME CONTACT Phone Number.  Then SELECT “Call/Text me with a verification code”.  You will receive a phone call or text with a verification code.  Enter this code into SchoolMessenger.

STEP 6: Click the button in the top left of the App, and then click“Join Groups”.
