School Connects Opt-In Instructions

emergency alert

 

 

 

 

 

Previously, USD 489 used Textcaster for emergency notifications.  That service will no longer be utilized next year.  School Connects Notify will replace that service for the 2016-2017 school year going forward.

To “Opt-In” to start receiving texts from School Connects Notify, please follow the instructions below:

Text the word “Join” to 56360.

  • If your number is already listed in Power School, you should get a confirmation text telling you it was successful.
  • If you receive a text back telling you that your number is not in the system, please email Amy Arnhold at aarnhold@usd489.com.  Include the phone number you want in the email to be set up with the service.  Text message rates will apply.
