Opt-in to Receive SMS Text Messages

Opt-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 2020, we have launched 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.

OPT-IN anytime by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number: For CANADA-BASED numbers: 978338. 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.

OPT-OUT anytime by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”, or texting "Stop" to 978338

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


St. 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.
