Another way to receive information
Posted on 09/30/2019

In today’s world, most people feel lost without their cell phone close at hand. Knowing this, the district now  sends important information directly to your cell phone.

To increase the methods of communication with parents, we have adding text messaging capability to SchoolMessenger, the system we use for phone calls and emails. The system has been configured to send text messages to cell phone numbers whose recipients have agreed to receive them.

There are only two requirements for a recipient to receive messages from schools or the district via SMS text: the recipient’s wireless number entered into ESchools or Employee Online and “Opt-In Confirmation” sent from the recipient’s wireless device. Recipients can easily opt-in by simply sending “Y” (or “Yes”) via text message to our SchoolMessenger Short Code number 67587. 

The wireless number(s) must be in the ESchools database or Employee Online database associated with a student or staff ID number; these numbers are updated nightly. If a recipient’s SMS text number is changed, or a new number added in our student information system database, the new number will automatically be sent an Opt-In message.

To begin receiving SMS messages from schools and the district:

  1. 1) Ensure your cell phone number(s) are entered accurately into the ESchools database or the Employee Online database.
  2. 2) Send “Y” (or “Yes”) via text message to our SchoolMessenger Short Code number 67587.
