New KCPS messaging service to boost public safety in schools

Northeast News
May 10, 2014

KANSAS CITY, Missouri — If you see something, say something. That’s the message from the Kansas City Public Schools is sending out while it tests a new instant messaging mobile application intended to improve safety across the school district.

The Kansas City Public Schools is testing the new app, called MessageQube, as a new way to contact the school’s safety and security dispatcher. After someone downloads the app, users can easily relay information to the dispatch about safety and security concerns. In the event of a school shooting, the app also allows a user who is in the school to send alerts without making any noise.

MessageQube is part of an ongoing effort by the KCPS to improve safety at its schools. If you do not wish to add the app, add the phone number 816-213-0997 to your contacts and you will receive messages from the KCPS Safety and Security Dispatcher.
