Get your school's messages using free apps
SchoolAlerts.ie is designed as an alternative to "SMS Text Alert" systems, which often come at a high cost to schools and parents. Rather than building our own app, we are integrating with existing apps that may already be loaded onto your smartphone or tablet. We work with Facebook Messenger, Viber and Telegram. These apps are trusted and familiar to the parent so there is little or no learning curve for them to set this up.
You should register on SchoolAlerts.ie if your school has requested that you do so. Once you are set up, all alerts will be delivered to you through your preferred app. All alerts you receive are free of charge to you and the school.

How To Set Up SchoolAlerts.ie for Parents
This system is quick and easy to set up for parents. There are four core stages:
- You need to register your details on SchoolAlerts.ie. If we find your number in a school list, then you can register. If you aren't linked to a school using this service, then you cannot proceed.
- When you register you can tell us what app channels you are using: Facebook Messenger, Viber or Telegram. We will send you a single SMS with a link back to our page on your preferred app.
- When you open your preferred app on our page, you must type in a 6-digit code. It will appear something like 123ABC. We will send you this on the SMS and it will appear on this website after you log in to the service. We will also text you your code during the setup process.
- Once you type in your code we will be able to link you back to SchoolAlerts.ie. We will now be able to start sending alerts to you from your school using your preferred app instead of SMS.
It only takes a moment to register and once you sign up there is no real need to come back to the site. You should only register on this site if your school has asked you to do so. There's no point in signing up if you aren't linked to a school using SchoolAlerts.ie! ;)
