Text messaging service offered to parents
Pflugerville ISD offers a service that will allow us to deliver important information to you via SMS text messaging. This service is intended to enhance the district's means of communication.
The district will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant. In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.
Simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453: subscribe, opt-in, yes. You will know you were successful if you receive the following reply message:“You are registered to receive aprox 3 msgs/mo. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help.”
You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for all wireless numbers that you wish to include.
Please note, only legal guardians whose contact information is currently tied to a student in the district’s student information system can opt-in to the text message system. If your number is not tied to a student in our district, the system will not accept your opt-in request for these notifications. If you are a staff member who does not have a student enrolled in Pflugerville ISD, you will only be able to receive text messages if you have your cell phone number on file with Human Resources.
The district has officially launched the new service.
Please note, although the district does not charge you for this service, it 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.
The service is provided by SchoolMessenger, the company which currently performs phone calls for absences and district emergencies. Subscribers may opt-out at any time by texting "STOP" 68453 or online.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the district’s Communication Department at 512-594-0092.
