Fostoria City Schools is partnered with FinalForms, an online forms and data management service. FinalForms allows you to complete and sign all annual enrollment and athletic participation forms for your students online – it is simple enough you can do it right from your smartphone.

Dear Parents/Guardians of Fostoria City Schools,

We believe it is important to communicate with our families.  One way we do that is with our instant message system. We are using a company called School Messenger. 

The phone numbers and emails that are used initially are the contacts listed in our student information system (DASL). If you would like to be able to change how you are contacted, we will need a current email address in our system. Please contact your child's school to add personal email address(es) to your child's profile in the District's Student Information System.  

Resources: Information Sheet:  Infocenter Introduction


Once your address is in you will be able to go to https://go.schoolmessenger.com/#/home and create an account that will allow you to add numbers and email addresses to your profile. Note: Changes made through the School Messenger application do not inform your child’s school of the changes.  Parents/Guardians should also inform the school of any changes to phone numbers and/or email addresses.

School Messenger provides you with the opportunity to “Opt-In” if you wish to receive school/district messages via text by texting“Yes” to our district’s short code number, 67587.  You can also “Opt Out” of receiving text messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop.”   

School Messenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.
