Using SchoolMessenger


SchoolMessenger is a web-based mass communications tool currently available across San Diego Unified School District. The system enables the district and its schools to personally communicate with parents/guardians to support emergency preparedness, school community involvement and student attendance. 

Authorized Users

The SchoolMessenger system may only be used by district employees or authorized charter school employees. Non-employee members of external organizations, such as PTAs and School Foundations, are not authorized to use SchoolMessenger. Principals or authorized staff members are welcome to send out messages on an external organization’s behalf. For security purposes, only staff members authorized by their principal or department head for the current school year will be granted user access.

  • School site or department
  • Name
  • User ID
  • Title
  • sandi.net email address
