Staunton City Schools uses the SchoolMessenger notification service to send important information to families through phone calls and email. In an effort to enhance service to our families we will be turning on text messaging capabilities on January 29th, 2018. This is optional if you choose to receive our notifications in this manner as well.
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 file, requesting that you "opt-in" to receive important information from the district via our SMS text messaging service.
The message you receive will be sent on Monday January 29th after school hours and will come from our 'short code', 67587 and read similar to the following:
"Staunton CSD 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.
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. Our organization does not reimburse for any charges associated with sending or receiving text messages.
