Kentwood Public Schools is excited to offer parents and students a new service known as SchoolMessenger. SchoolMessenger is a notification system which will be used to communicate important information to KPS families. This system is capable of communicating via phone, email and text messages. SchoolMessenger will be used to broadcast school closings, delays and emergency situations. SchoolMessenger will also be used to communicate non-emergency information such as attendance information and important event reminders.

SchoolMessenger operates off the data contained in our Synergy Student Information System. It is important that parents keep their contact information up to date. Any changes to address, phone numbers and email need to be made through the office at the child’s school.

Text Message Opt-in Procedure
To opt-in to receive important information via text message, you must first opt-in to this service. To do so, text “YES” or “Y” to 67587. Please note: KPS is not responsible for any text message charges you may incur.
