School Messenger

Dear Parents, 


MDIRSS 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 www.SchoolMessenger.com/tm 

MDIRSS 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 68453subscribe, 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 any wireless numbers that you wish to include. 

In addition to performing the opt-in process above you’ll want to insure that MDIRSS 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. 

MDIRSS will be officially launching the new service in the next few weeks, so until then you won’t receive any further text messages. 

Please note, although MDIRSS 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 Josh Young, MDIRSS Educational Technology Coordinator, at (207) 288-5040 or joshua.young@mdirss.org.  Thank you.
