Good Afternoon SJCSD Employees, Parents and Guardians:
The St. Johns County School District has begun using a new mass notification system called SchoolMessenger. While the migration to this new system will be a seamless process with regard to voicemails and emails from principals and district administration, it will be necessary for everyone to opt-in to receive text messaging.
There are only two requirements for a recipient to receive messages via SMS text: the recipient’s wireless number imported into SchoolMessenger from our Student System and “Opt-In Confirmation” from the recipient’s wireless device. These requirements address any concerns related to the accuracy of the database and potential costs associated with receiving text messages.
Recipients can easily opt-in by simply responding “Y” (or “Yes”), to the SchoolMessenger opt-in message from 67587. The invitation to opt-in will be sent to Parents/Guardians and District employees on Wednesday, January 4, 2017.
If Parents/Guardians do not receive an opt-in text message on their mobile device from SchoolMessenger by midnight on January 4, 2017 please contact your school in the next few days that follow to add your mobile device phone number to your contact information.
If Employees do not receive an opt-in text message on their mobile device from SchoolMessenger by midnight on January 4, 2017 please update your Employee Information by logging into Employee Online and editing or adding your cell phone number.
