School Notification Text Opt-in Coming Friday
Families will receive a text message from Crestview and SchoolMessenger (67587) on Friday inviting you to opt-in to receive occasional texts regarding closings, delays, events and emergencies. You must reply "Y" to continue receiving texts from this system.
If you do not wish to receive texts on a particular number, simply ignore the opt-in message, or text STOP to 67587 at anytime.
District to Implement New Notification System
We are excited to announce that over the next couple weeks, Crestview is implementing a parent notification system, SchoolMessenger, to alert families about delays, school closings, emergencies, attendance, and occasional reminders about special events. The system will provide us more effective options for communication with families through phone, text, and email as appropriate.
If we have a mobile number in our students records, you will receive an Opt-In invitation from 67587 in 2-3 weeks. To receive notifications by text, you will be required to respond to directions within that text to confirm that you wish to continue to receive messages - mobile carriers use this verification to reduce spam.
If you have recently changed your contact information, please contact your childâ€™s school office to update our records.
We will continue to use our standard notification channels for school delays and closings this year.
Crestview looks forward to improving our ability to keep the districtâ€™s families in the loop about happenings in the district.
