EVSC to Roll Out Texting Option for Parents

first_imgIn order to better communicate with families, the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is officially rolling out text messaging as another avenue for communication and family notification. Text messages will officially begin Tuesday, September 20, and will be an addition to the phone calls and emails families receive.Families who wish to receive text messages from the EVSC and their school must opt-in to the service. On Tuesday, September 20, families who have a wireless number listed in their student’s account with the EVSC will receive a message from 67587 asking them to reply “Y” to confirm and to continue receiving messages.  Those individuals who do not wish to receive texts can disregard the message.  Any wireless number listed on the student’s account can opt-in to receive text messages.“This will be a great service to our parents and families,” said Jason Woebkenberg, EVSC Chief Communications Officer. “Our families communicate in so many different ways today and we know that one important way is through texts. Having the ability to quickly communicate with parents via text messaging will be important as we continue to refine ways we communicate with our families.”As always, messaging and data rates may apply and the frequency of text messages will vary. Individuals may call 812-435-EVSC with questions.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
