Text Messaging - Coming to SchoolMessenger
Posted on February 3rd, 2020
Palliser Regional Schools uses the SchoolMessenger notification service to send important information to families through phone calls emails and coming soon . . .text messages.
To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages you may recive a text message on the wireless cell phone number which Palliser Regional Schools has on your file, requesting that you "opt-in" to receive important information from the district via our SMS text messaging service.
The message you receive will come from our 'short code' 978338' and read similar to the following:
"Palliser Regional Schools SMS 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 school."
To opt out of all text message from SchoolMessenger, visit http://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg/or simply reply with "STOP" to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt-in, but later decide to opt-out, simply send "STOP" o 978338. You may also reply "STOP" to any message from our organization.
At this time, Kate Andrews High School plans to only use the text messaging option for important or urgent announcements that need to get out quickly.
Please check with your wireless carrier for information about your mobile service plan and any possible charges related to text messaging. Our organization does not reimburse for any charges associated with sending or receiving text messages.
