New from SchoolMessenger: Text messaging

posted Aug 19, 2015, 8:52 AM by Cummings Elementary

Salem-Keizer Public Schools uses SchoolMessenger notification service to send important messages to parents. SchoolMessenger contacts parents through phone calls, emails and text messages.

 The district’s primary methods of automated communication with parents are phone calls and emails, however it is important that schools and the district have option to text parents in the future if needed.

 Parents who included a cell phone number on their student’s registration form may receive a text message from SchoolMessenger asking them to opt in to receive text messages.

 The opt in text message will look similar to this:

“Salem-Keizer Public Schools messages. Reply Y for aprx 3 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. See schoolmessenger.com/tm ”

 Parents are encouraged to opt in to receive messages from their school and/or the school district via text. To opt out, visit http://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg/ or reply with STOP to the opt in message.

 Parents who opt out of receiving text messages from SchoolMessenger will still receive phone calls and emails from the system.

 The school district does not pay for text message charges you may incur for receiving texts from SchoolMessenger. Please check with your wireless carrier if you are unsure about possible charges.

 If you have questions about SchoolMessenger, please contact the school office.
