FHSD SchoolMessenger Automated Attendance Calls

The Francis Howell School District implemented the SchoolMessenger notification system to make automated calls to parents and guardians regarding weather-related school closings and school emergencies. We are now expanding the use of the notification system to make attendance calls for students that are absent from school.

If your child is absent from school, you will receive an automated phone call, text message and/or email (depending on your contact preferences) through the SchoolMessenger system. The system allows our schools to log attendance and notify parents of any unverified or unexcused absence in the timeliest manner possible. Please note, parents should still call the school attendance office to report your child/children's absence from school anytime they will be absent or late to school.
