Starting this summer USD 337 Royal Valley will begin using a new alert system for all notifications of events. SchoolMessenger is the platform we will utilize. All parents and students who have their cell numbers in our PowerSchool can participate in this free service just by sending "Y" or "yes" to our school's short code number, 67587. If you do not do this, you WILL NOT receive any text alerts. You will only receive email alerts.
It is important to do this from EACH devise you wish to receive text messages on--cell phone, work cell phone, etc.
We are reaching out to everyone in advance of the initial enrollment phase. If you send "Y" or "yes" to 67587 now, you will not receive the mass text or email that will go out to the entire district on June 19 asking every person to opt-in for text messages. You will be ahead of the game!
You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying "stop" to one of the messages you receive. SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given out or sold to anyone.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be available at enrollment to answer any other questions you might have. Click on the pdf link below for more information.
