We use School Messenger to send messages by phone, email, and text. In order to do this, accurate information is needed in our database, PowerSchool. Any changes to your information will take at least 1 to 2 school days to be updated.
Phone: Messages will go to all home phones and cell phones. If you phone number is disconnected, changed, etc. please contact our school so we may update your records.
Email: Messages will only go to the home email addresses. If you have a work email, the message will not go to it. However, if you only have a work email and no home email address, we can put the work email address in the home email section. Please let us know.
Text: Messages will go to your cell phone if you opt in. However, please see IMPORTANT as there are several issues concerning cell phone carriers.
To Opt In: text the word Yes to 68453
To Opt Out: text the word Stop to 68453
Note: Text Messages won’t be received if your number is not in our database.
IMPORTANT: One other issue can be if your account either does not allow or is not currently set up to receive short code messages. Short code messaging is something like a subset of text messaging, which is to say you can have text messaging enabled and still not be able to receive short code messages. Many accounts from large cell companies do not have that turned on, to prevent large bills from voting for American Idol, etc. The Pay-As-You-Go cell phones typically do not have text messaging at all, or if they do, many do not allow short code messaging. If a parent attempts to send the word Yes to 68453 and gets back either no reply at all or an error message, they’ll need to contact their provider to see if they can get short code messaging enabled. If they are able to do so successfully, they’ll then need to text the word Yes to 68453 to opt in to our system.
