The Columbus Community School District uses the SchoolMessenger notification service to send important information to families through phone calls, emails, and text messages.
To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, you may receive an SMS message to the wireless cell phone number that the district has on file requesting that you opt in to receive important information from the district via SMS text message.
The message you receive will be similar to the following:
Columbus Community School District Reply Y for aprx 5 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. Visit schoolmessenger.com/tm"
So that you can continue to receive these important messages from your student’s school district, we encourage you to reply with "Y" or "Yes" or "OPTIN" when you receive such a verification message.
To opt out of all text messages from SchoolMessenger, visit http://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg/ or reply with STOP to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt in, but decide to opt out later on, you may also reply "STOP" to any message or send "STOP" to 68453.
The school district does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
