We are so excited to offer this feature to better keep you informed!
- Standard data and messaging rates or fees may apply depending on your cell phone service provider.
- We recommend saving the short code 67587 and Caller ID to the contacts on your phone.This will help prevent any 3rd party call blocking systems from interfering with your receipt of important messages sent by the school.
- SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy PledgeTM, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.
- SMS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a “text message”. Most cell phones support this type of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting. This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers.If you’ve ever sent a text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.
