    School Messenger App

    Hello Parents and Guardians,

    As you may have heard, an exciting new communication tool is available for the 2018-2019 school year!  It is the SchoolMessenger App!  The app provides a district-approved secure and safe way to communicate with your child’s teacher(s).  Download the app from the App Store or Google Play or access it via the web at 

    Directions are attached to help you sign up for the app.  Signing up via the web is very similar.  The app and web version function the same and can be used interchangeably.  Make sure you use the email that the district has on file for you when signing up.  Your email can be verified by checking the email address in your ParentVue account.  Don’t have a ParentVue account?  Contact your school office for an activation code and set up an account.

    The School Messenger App is a long-term communication strategy for engaging with your child’s teacher(s).  Sign up one time and have access each subsequent school year, you don’t need to re-register each year.  Class/Teacher information is preloaded in your account.

    Additional benefits:

    • View and listen to messages sent from your school or the district
    • Edit how you are contacted by the district – set your preferences
    • Join and participate in additional groups that are created (Examples:  Chess Club, Study Group)
    • Student, Parent/Guardian, Teacher data is protected with our data-sharing agreement with SchoolMessenger

    safety first

    Due to recent safety concerns, the MacArthur Staff is asking that you do not drop off your children in the parking lot.

    In addition, please do not stop in the middle of the street and allow your student to run across.

    In the best safety interest of all our students, please safely drop off your child at one of the following:

    •  In front of MacArthur on Centralia
    • Gate on Henry Lee
    • Please note, the gate on Gondar is temporarily not available

    Thank you.
