Opt-in to Receive SMS Text MessagesOpt-In Code for TextingOur schools and board use the Intrado SchoolMessenger system to communicate with parents and guardians by email and telephone, and as of December 2, 2020, we are launching SMS text messaging to enhance communication with our families. By opting-in to receive text messages from your school and the board, it will allow us to deliver important information about school closings, safety alerts and more straight to your mobile phone.

On December 2, 2020 at approximately 10:00 AM all families with a cell phone number registered in our Student Information System will receive an opt-in text message. To prepare for the opt-in date, the most important step is to ensure that your cell phone number is up-to-date and accurately recorded at your child's school before December 2, 2020. 

You can opt-in before December 2, 2020, by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number:

For CANADA-BASED numbers: 978338

Opt-In from your mobile Phone – Just text “Y” to 978338

You can opt-out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

You will know you are successful if you receive the following reply message:

You’re registered 4 SchoolMessenger. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help. Std. msg/data rates may apply.

If you are uncertain as to whether or not you opted in successfully, simply repeat the opt-in process above. There is no harm in sending the opt-in message more than once.

If you have any issues in opting-in, it most likely means that your child’s school does not have your wireless number(s) in our student information system. Please contact your child’s school to provide them with your information and they will update their records:


Telephone Number

École Ste-Marguerite Bourgoeys


St. Louis Living Arts School


Pope John Paul II School


St. John School


St. Isidore Virtual School


St. Thomas Aquinas High School


Please note that although Kenora Catholic does not charge you for this service, it does not pay for the text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
