SchoolMessenger Phone Messages

November 3, 2017 - 

The St. Johns County School District uses SchoolMessenger for notification to parents/families via text, email and phone.  Previously when phone calls were initiated, a school phone number was displayed on the receiver’s phone.  Starting Friday, November 3rd, the number that will display when a call is generated from any school in the district will be (844) 309-7699.   This change will enable the person receiving the message to call this number back and hear the most current messages received.

This change will assist us in furthering our efforts to ensure that mass phone messages are accurate and consistent. Thank you for your continued support.
