Text alerts added to School Messenger

Monday, 10 October 2016 15:51

Bolivar Schools is adding text messaging capability to SchoolMessenger, the system we use now for phone calls and emails. SchoolMessenger purchased SchoolReach last year and over spring break the district moved to SchoolMessenger.

To remain compliant with FCC and TCPA guidelines, School Messenger requires individuals to "opt-in" for text messages alerts from School Messenger.

Parents can easily opt-in by simply sending “Y” (or “Yes”), via text message, to our SchoolMessenger Short Code number (67587). 

The wireless number(s) must be in the SchoolMessenger database associated with a student; these numbers are updated nightly. If a recipient’s number SMS Text number is changed, or a new number added, in our database, the new number will automatically be sent an Opt-In message.

To change your contact number, please contact Katie Duncan at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. While texting is now an option, the district will continue to utilize voice messages as well as text alerts.

There are three ways to complete the process.
