Weekly Parent Email

Parent emails are scheduled to be sent each Sunday evening during the school year but may be delayed on occasion due to circumstances beyond our control. If you are not receiving the emails from messenger@plusportals.com you might try checking your spam filter. (The "from" email is a change beginning in the summer of 2019.)

To be added to our parent email list, please send an email to info@bishopkelley.org. Incoming freshman and transfer parents will automatically be added to our email list, as long as email contact information was provided with the student's registration.
