The Messages feature links to the SchoolMessenger app, which you will download from the App Store. Find the app by tapping Messages in the GLSD app.
Once the SchoolMessenger app is installed, you will see a blue screen with options to sign up or log in.
To sign up, the following must be true.
1. You must be the guardian of a student enrolled at Goshen Local Schools.
2. You must provide an email address that is attached to your student(s) in Goshen's student information system.
3. You must be able to verify ownership of the email address by logging in to it.
If you have any issues with the above requirements, you should contact your student's building.
When you are ready, choose sign up, then give the app your email address and create a password.
SchoolMessenger will send an email in order to verify that you are the owner of the email account.
Check your email, click the verify link, and then return to the SchoolMessenger app.
This time, choose log in. Log in using the email address you provided and the password you created.
Once logged in successfully, you will see all of the messages Goshen has sent your student(s) this school year.
The next time you tap Messages in the GLSD app, you will be taken to your list of messages immediately.
The ProgressBook button allows parents and students to log in to ProgressBook within the GLSD app in just a few taps.
The app also provides instructions for creating a ProgressBook account if you have never done so.
