Columbia Public Schools' messaging system allows parents and guardians to receive school messages via phone, text, e-mail and mobile app.
Guardians automatically receive a user ID and password created upon enrolling a child in Columbia Public Schools. To access the CPS Messages system you must first log into the CPS Families Portal. If you have never accessed the CPS Families Portal or have forgotten your username, then choose the user name look up link. To reset your CPS Families Portal password, choose the reset password link.

Contact information for the CPS Messages system is managed by the district's student information system (eSchool) by the school registrar at your child's school. Contact information can be updated by contacting your child's school registrar. Logging in to the CPS Messages system allows parents to see messages, attendance, classes, lunch balance communications and more.
Columbia Public Schools also has a free mobile app for Android and iPhone that can be downloaded to a smart device to access school and school district information. CPS Messages are delivered directly to the mobile app.
Community members, who are not parents/guardians, can also create a CPS Messages account by visiting the CPS Messages login page and clicking on the signup button. Sign up to receive e-mail and text message updates from Columbia Public Schools.
