Notification System: SchoolMessenger Communicate



Communication is important to Niles Community Schools. SchoolMessenger is the program we use to inform parents of important information in a timely manner. You can easily download the SchoolMessenger App from Google Play or the Apple AppStore. In order to assure that you will be contacted about weather related school closings or other important messages, please log into your ParentPortal account to verify contact information. SchoolMessenger pulls your contact information from the ParentPortal. If there are changes that need to be made, please contact your school office. Detailed directions and information are provided below for PowerSchool ParentPortal access. If at any time you need additional support, do not hesitate to contact your school office.
