TK to Offer Text Messaging Alerts to Families

To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect you against unsolicited text messages, you will receive a text from the school district. The text will go to the cell phone numbers we have on file for your student(s), requesting you to “Opt-In” to receive school notifications via SMS text messaging. We encourage you to reply with “Y” for yes when you receive this verification. However, if you do not wish to receive notifications through text, simply reply with “STOP,” or ignore/delete the message.


Regardless of opting in or out, you will continue to receive notifications the way you have in the past. We have added a link to SchoolMessenger in PowerParent where you can further customize how you receive the different types of notifications that go out from the school. To access PowerParent, go to


Please check with your wireless carrier for information about your mobile service plan and any possible charges related to text messaging.  


Again, the text message will go out on December 8. Please contact the Technology Department at 269-795-5430 or if you have any questions or concerns.
