TLDSB Has a New App!
Trillium Lakelands District School Board has launched a free mobile app designed to keep students, parents, staff, and community members informed about their schools and the district.
Through the app, users will have complete control over which schools they want to follow and may choose to receive push notifications right to their phone. News, transportation updates, calendars, school contact details, and community information is all available through the app and can be downloaded for iOS through the Apple Store and for Android devices from Google Play.
The mobile app is integrated into the same communication platform that allows the district to manage and share important information by phone call, text message, email, and now, mobile app.

TLDSB is using SchoolMessenger to Enhance Home-School Communication – Here’s How to Opt-In:
Technology has made communication easier than ever before. Today, many parents use email, websites, social media, and/or text subscriptions when they want to receive important news. Trillium Lakelands District School Board wants you to receive information when you want, and how you want through SchoolMessenger.
SchoolMessenger is a parent notification service that lets us communicate easily with you about the things that matter most. Things like school news and events, and important or urgent, and news from our board. SchoolMessenger has taken over SchoolConnects, our previous messenger service. For that reason, all existing users who wish to receive text messages will need to opt-in again. New users will also opt-in to receive text messages.
Here’s How to Opt-In for Alerts From Your School and TLDSB:
- First, ensure that your school has your preferred contact number(s) on record. Once your cell
number has been entered by the school, they will keep it on file.
- If you wish to opt-in, text ‘Y’ to 978338 (standard message rates may apply).
If you have done this correctly, you will receive the following message:
“You’ve registered 4 SchoolMessenger. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help. Std msg/data rates apply. Freq varies. schoolmessenger.com/smsca.”
Any text messages from your school will come from the number 978338. We suggest that you add this to your contact list in your cell phone with the name “TLDSB”. This way, the caller ID feature on your phone will show that the message is from Trillium Lakelands District School Board.
Online Parent Outreach Community:
A new online community for parents has been created, combining parenting resources with social networking. WhereParentsTalk.com includes WhereParentsTalk TV – online webisodes with feature interviews, recipes and tips for today’s busy parents. The site is for parents of kids from pre-school to teens, opening up a new resource tool for all parents.
Parents can access the site at
