The Knox Community School Board members received an update on School Messenger during their meeting Monday night.
Superintendent A.J. Gappa said anyone can sign up to receive emails, text messages or automated calls from the system. School Messenger is the system the corporation uses to alert patrons about school delays, a closure or any emergency situation that may arise.
“We started this in January of 2013 and anybody who contact information on our PowerSchool setup, could opt on to School Messenger,” explained Gappa.
Gappa said it’s easy to sign up to be a part of the program.
“If anyone would like to receive this information, text the letter ‘Y’ or the word ‘yes’ to 68453 on your cell phone. If you do that, you can become and automatic recipient of any texts that come out from School Messenger,” he said.
If you already receive the information from School Messenger but would like to opt out of receiving those messages by texting “no” or “N” to 68453.
