Parents of freshman or other students new to Bishop Chatard must “opt-in” to our School Messenger system in order to receive urgent notifications via text message from BCHS. This would include notification of weather-related delays or cancellations, or any other time-sensitive situation that the school needed to communicate to you. Parents are automatically registered to receive emails and phone calls — this additional step is required only to receive text messages.
Parents who have changed their mobile phone number in the last year must also go through the opt-in process to receive mobile calls and texts.
Go to our School Messenger FAQs page for details about the process and troubleshooting.
