District Communication

Pearl River School District uses the SchoolMessenger notification system to communicate important broadcasts such as school closings or other emergency situations by phone, email and text messages to families in the District.  PRSD also uses this system to send emails and texts pertaining to general district and school information and events. Please note the majority of our communications are through email.

Parents & Guardians: 
Parents are automatically enrolled to receive phone calls and emails using their contact data in their eSD Parent Portal account. To receive text messages, parents must reply 'Y' from their cell phone to SchoolMessenger's initial verification message in order to opt-in to receive texts. If you are unsure if you have opted-in, simply text 'Y' from your cell phone to short code  67587 (similar to putting in a phone number). SchoolMessenger should send you back a confirmation.

Please login to your Parent Portal account to ensure all of your contact information is accurate.  Please contact your child(ren)'s school(s) if you require any changes.  

Community members can subscribe to receive email messages from the District by using the following link:  https://asp.schoolmessenger.com/pearlriver/subscriber. These individuals must also reply 'Y' from their cell phone to SchoolMessenger's verification message in order to opt-in to receive texts. Please note, however, that most communication from PRSD is via email.
