Pine Bush Central School District uses the SchoolMessenger notification system for automated messages in communications with parents and guardians. These options include text messages and emails in addition to phone calls. Parents and guardians are able to select how they would like to be notified for the different types of communications from the district by using SchoolMessenger’s InfoCenter. Please note that text messaging will only be available for parents and guardians who opt in.
