School Messenger Notification Service
Text Message Opt-In
Currently, the district uses the SchoolMessenger notification service to send important information to families through phone calls and emails. Starting this 2018-2019 school year, Parents and Staff now have the option to receive notifications through text messages.
To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, you will receive a text message on the wireless cell phone number which the district has on your file, requesting that you "opt-in" to receive important information from the district via our SMS text messaging service.
The message will be sent on Wednesday, July 25th at approx. 9AM
The message you receive will come from our 'short code', 67587 and read similar to the following:
"Dunlap Community Unit School District 323 messages. Reply Y to subscribe or STOP to cancel. Msg&data rates may apply. Msg freq varies. Visit schoolmessenger.com/txt for info"
So that you may continue to receive these important messages, we encourage you to reply with "Y" or "Yes" when you receive such a verification message. If you do not reply, you will not receive any further text messages from our schools.
If you wish, you can opt in before this message is sent by simply texting “Y” or “Yes” to 67587. You will receive a text back confirming your registration.
To opt out of all text messages from SchoolMessenger, visit http://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg/ or reply with "STOP" to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt-in, but later decide to opt-out, simply send "STOP" to 67587. You may also reply "STOP" to any message from our organization.
Please check with your wireless carrier for information about your mobile service plan and any possible charges related to text messaging. The district does not reimburse for any charges associated with sending or receiving text messages.
