• System Test 2016
    The Methacton School District utilizes the SchoolMessenger notification system to reach our families via phone, text, and email. This system enables us to reach families quickly with important information about school closings and emergencies, while distributing important reminders and other general updates from individual schools and district offices.

    In order to effectively use this system, we need to ensure that family contact information is up to date and accurate so that you will receive a call in the event of a school closing, delay, or other emergency.

    We will conduct a test of our system on the evening of Sunday, November 6 at 7 p.m. by placing a “School Closing-Delays” call and issuing a “General” email. If you do not receive a call and email at 7 p.m.:

    • Log in to your Contact Manager account and make updates to phone numbers and/or email addresses. If your primary phone number or email is wrong, you must update this directly with your school office.
    • If you do not have a ContactManager account, click for instructions for creating your Contact Manager account.

    Update your “preferences.” Ensure that you have checked the “General” box next to all phone numbers and emails. Important messages such as bus delays, principal’s messages, and more are sent as a general message.  If you do not select “general” messages, you won’t receive them.  You may view a short video to learn how to modify your SchoolMessenger preferences.

    If you have questions, please contact Kathy Kifer in the office of school and community information at kkifer@methacton.org.
