2.) Administrative Changes

When an attendance clerk, Principal, or any additional staff that has access to SchoolMessenger changes, please let TMS know. This will allow us to make changes to the data you see.


Attendance Clerks get a daily notification when the attendance reports go out. If another person takes that position, TMS must know so that we change this in SchoolMessenger.

3.) Check your Account Settings

- Please check your Account Settings


Please make sure the caller id phone number is correct to the campus you are at. If you swap campuses you may end up with caller ID of your last campus and confuse parents when you do a callout.
