How To Opt In (or Out) To Text Messaging


SchoolMessenger provides a SMS text messaging service designed to enhance communication by allowing us to deliver important information to your SMS enabled cell phone/smart phone.

If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment to complete the simple opt-in process below. 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, optin, 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 all cell phone numbers that you wish to include. If you’re uncertain as to whether or not you’ve already opted in simply repeat the opt-in process above. There’s no harm in sending the opt-in message more than once.

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. Alternatively you can use the Skylert portal in Family Access to enter the cell phone numbers for which you wish to receive 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.

For help information, text HELP to 68453.
To opt out at any time, text STOP to 68453.
