1.  School Messenger - To receive important school and district emails (including emergency notices), ensure your email address is correct in InformationNOW (INow).  To verify this information, you will need to log in to iNow (see directions in item #2 below).  If you need your PIN slip with username and password information again, please contact your school registrar.  Note:  INow does not allow you to view Parent/Contact phone information; the school registrar can assist as needed with phone updates.

2.  School Messenger Emergency Text - The most time-sensitive and critical alerts from MCS will be sent by the superintendent’s office using School Messenger’s Emergency Text Message system.  Because the use of Text Messages is regulated by the FCC, you must Opt-In to receive them.  To do so, simply text the letter Y to 67587 from your mobile phone.  You should receive a confirmation or further instructions within minutes.  You can Opt-Out at any time by texting STOP to 67587.

3.  InformationNOW (direct access)- Access to assignments and grades. Within the first few weeks, schools send home "Pin slips" with login directions.

Note:  Assignments in InformationNOW should only be used as a guide; best practice is for students to write class assignments in a planner.  If assignments are not showing in InformationNOW, please contact the teacher. Teachers may modify, add, delete or change the pace of assignments as listed in InformationNOW.

For Username/Password problems when accessing InformationNOW, please contact your student's school for assistance.
