Keep contact information updated to stay informed

Throughout the year, the Palmyra-Macedon Central School District communicates important announcements and updates to parents and guardians with a mass messaging system, SchoolMessenger.  This tool plays a vital role in keeping district families aware of important information, special events and school closings.


To ensure announcements and updates are received, the district asks parents and guardians to make sure information within the student information database, SchoolTool, is accurate and up to date.  SchoolTool data is used to populate contact lists in SchoolMessenger. The primary contact in SchoolTool is determined by the home residence of the student. The district also maintains emergency contacts which can include multiple contacts and may be utilized when the primary contact is unreachable.


With the start of the new school year, now is a great time to update contact information. In SchoolTool, parents and guardians can update phone numbers, emails and contact order.  Information can be updated at


For additional updates and questions, please contact the main office of the school site of the student(s).  Parents and guardians are encouraged to update information immediately following any change in status.


Similarly, when a situation arises which requires direct notification of a parent or guardian outside of the mass messaging system, the district utilizes the primary contact listed in SchoolTool.  


Pal-Mac has students with a wide variety of living situations unique to each family.  The process of using a primary contact allows the district to have a clear and easily identifiable strategy for all families across the district.  The process helps information to be disseminated concisely to the parents and guardians at the home which the student resides.  The responsibility and expectation is the primary contact will then serve as a conduit to provide information to those additional parties that may need to be included in the process.


Should you have any questions regarding contact information updates or the notification process, please contact the main office of the school site of the student(s).
