School Wide Alerts

Hoboken Charter School has replaced the Honeywell Instant Alert system with SchoolMessenger Communicate to support communication efforts including emergency broadcasts and student attendance alerts.

Your information will be taken from our student information system OnCourse.  Please make sure that your information is accurate in OnCourse and that you have a cell phone number included if you would like to receive text message alerts.

To update your information, log in to your OnCourse account at In the upper left corner, click “View/Edit Student and Guardian Info” underneath your child’s name. Click Update under Guardian/Contact Information. Add your cell number in the field “Mobile Phone.”

To receive text message alerts in addition to email and phone alerts, you must complete a second step that indicates your interest in receiving text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.

(1) Simply text any one of the following words to the number 67587: subscribe, optin, yes

(2) You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you wish to include.
