Opt In for SMS Text Messaging

Comstock Public Schools is transitioning to the SchoolMessenger system to deliver important information about events, school closings, safety alerts, and more*, straight to your mobile device via text messages.

Opt -in from your mobile device now! To participate in this free service*, just send a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587.

You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop.”

SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge™, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

If you want to receive text messages when we have school closures due to excessive snow or extreme cold, YOU NEED TO OPT IN.  Regardless of whether or not you have received text messages from us in the past, YOU NEED TO OPT IN to receive future text messages from us.

SMS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a "text message." Most mobile devices support this type of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting. This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers.

If you’ve ever sent a text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.

*Terms and Conditions: Message frequency varies. Standard message and data rates may apply. Reply HELP for help. Text STOP to cancel. Mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. See schoolmessenger.com/tm for more info.

NOTE: If you opt-in by sending a message to 67587 and you ARE NOT currently signed up to receive messages about your student via Infinite Campus, you will NOT receive text messages from SchoolMessenger. If you have a student attending our schools but you do not currently have an Infinite Campus account, please reach out to the office at your child's school building to have an account set up for you. 

This text service is NOT for the general public. If you are a member of the general public and wish to know about school closures, please check our Twitter feeddistrict Facebook page, or this website for the latest information.
