Methven Primary School uses Message My Way to send message alerts and reminders to school families. This cloud-based service allows parents to select the platform that they wish to receive the alerts/reminders via.
Message My Way allows us to send two types of alerts:
- Normal: This is used to keep parents/caregivers up-to-date with happenings around the school (including school newsletters) and to send out reminders. Alerts are sent via email and parents/caregivers can also receive alerts via Facebook Messenger or Twitter alerts.There is no cost to the school to send out a Normal alert.
- Urgent: We send out important updates (e.g. school closures) via the urgent messages. These can be received via text or voice message. Cost to the school (12c per text, 9c per mobile voicemail, 3c per landline voicemail).
