Opt-in to receive text messaging

  • We’re excited to offer text messages to parents through our automated messaging system! This is one more way (in addition to voice, email and app) parents can receive updates about events, inclement weather, and more.

    There is a two-step process to opt-in for text messages. Both steps in ParentVUE and the automated messaging system (ParentLink) must be completed. After finishing the ParentVUE steps you must wait until 6 p.m. the following day before completing the ParentLink steps.

    5. Edit any existing mobile phone number, or add a new phone number by selecting the + icon, where you’d like to receive text messages
    6. Mark the column with a check mark that says “Contact”
    7. Update the column that says “text” to “yes”
    8. Scroll up and click the “Update Account” button
