Penn-Harris-Madison utilizes the School Messenger® alert notification service to distribute emergency messages, such as school closings, delays and student attendance (for unexcused absences).


Parents are encouraged to visit today to create an account and set up your preferences for receiving emergency messages from the District. Instructions for how to set up your account, with step-by-step directions are below, just click here.


Please follow these guidelines in regards to parent use of SchoolMessenger:

  • Parents must have an email address on file with your child’s school first in order to utilize SchoolMessenger InfoCenter. If you have more than one child in a P-H-M school you will need to contact each school individually.
    • If you do not have an email address on file, please contact your child’s school to provide one. You will utilize this email address to create an account and login into InfoCenter. If you are providing a new email address or updating your email address with the school (Monday-Friday), please wait until the following business day to logon on to to create your account. If you have any problems after providing your email address, please contact your school’s office. 
    • InfoCenter accounts are set up with the corresponding parent/guardian email addresses on file. If the school has only one email address on file, parents/guardians will share one account. If individual parents/guardians wish to have accounts set up separately, they must provide separate email addresses. This will allow each parent/guardian to have their own InfoCenter account and set up their own preferences for their contact information. There can only be one email address per parent/guardian
  • Parents have to contact your child’s school to update phone numbers and email addresses. You will not be able to change it in School Messenger! ​You will not see the reflective change until the following business day! At that point you can update your preferences.
  • Parents cannot select the option not to receive a phone call; parents can only select not to receive a text message or email. Parents can change their options to receive text messages or emails as many times as they wish.
  • At least one phone number must be selected for Non-school Hours Emergency, School Hours Emergency and Attendance. These classify as emergencies and therefore you cannot opt out to only receive these emergency notifications via text or email (Please disregard the Survey box under the preference configurations. The District will not be using this feature at this time).
