Receive messages via text
October 29, 2012
The district is excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance communication by allowing us to deliver important information to you via SMS text messaging. This service is not intended to replace our existing means of communication– rather it will enhance them.
The service is provided by SchoolMessenger. Information can be found at
The district will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant.
In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text
messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.
Simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453: subscribe, option, yes
You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message:
You are registered to receive aprox 3 msgs/mo. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help.
You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you wish to include.
In addition to performing the opt-in process above you’ll want to insure that the district has your
wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven’t already provided that
information to your school please contact them and provide them with that information.
The district will be officially launching the new service in approximately a month, so until then you won’t receive any further text messages.
Please note, although the district does not charge you for this service, it does not pay for text
message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact your child’s school.
