Is there a way to select all students whose grade is below a certain percentage to send them an inbox message?

Unfortunately, no, the most you could do is message students who scored a certain grade on a specific assignment. There is a feature idea for this though -

A workaround I use is to create an assignment that is worth zero points. If you are passing the class you will not have a score in this column but if you are failing you will have a zero. It doesn't change any grades and I can quickly send a message to my failing students.

@lhandler (and everyone else) since this post was answered, Canvas has implemented a feature that addresses this.  If you click on "New Analytics" on the course homepage the first page is the course grade.  If you click the little envelope icon where you can type in names, it will bring up a window that allows you to message students from a determined score range.
