Parent Messenger Center
The Boyer Valley School will be using the JMC Parent Message Center this year to call, text, or email parents of emergency/weather related announcements or general school information.
HOW DO YOU SIGN UP FOR TEXTS AND VOICE CALLS?
The school has initiated the program to contact the primary contacts you listed at registration. However, if you want to make changes or add a number, you may go to the Boyer Valley website at www.boyer-valley.k12.ia.us , under JMC online grades sign in to the JMC account. Your username will be the student’s primary contact’s last name. For those families who have used this for student progress reports your password will be set, if you do not have a password call the school office (712-643-2251, Dunlap or 712-674-3248, Dow City). For parents who do not have internet access the office may enable the text message and phone numbers to be called for that particular parent, again call the office in the building your child attends.
By logging into Parent Access the parent is allowed up to 8 phone numbers:
•This number is allowed to receive text message.
•This number is to be called for a specific area such as emergency/weather related or you may check any combination or all at once. (This will be a phone call to selected number)
Parents also have the ability through parent access to request an email be sent for period attendance, missing scores and grade percentage reasons. For further instructions you may view a JMC instructional video at jmcinc.com/resources/instructional-videos and watch “Parent Access Parent Alerts.”
Several junior high and high school parents have used our JMC online grade system in the past to keep updated on their child(ren)’s grade progress throughout the year. This feature is now being offered for the 4th & 5th grade students. If you have not and would like to access this program go to the school website www.boyer-valley.k12.ia.us, under JMC online grades to log in. Just inform the office of a password to set it up.
