As part of this transition, SchoolMessenger sent an automated text message Monday morning from 67587 to HIDOE parents, which said:
Hawaii Department of Education alerts. Reply Y 2 confirm, HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. Msg freq varies. schoolmessenger.com/txt
Parents of students enrolled at schools participating in this service may opt in by texting “Y” or “Yes” to 67587. Parents may also opt out of these messages at any time by replying “Stop.”
SchoolMessenger will only send this text message once. Anyone who may have deleted the text message or chose not to opt in at this time may still enroll by visiting www.schoolmessenger.com and downloading the program’s smartphone app. Parents who replied to Monday’s text will begin receiving alerts two weeks after their initial opt-in date; they will be alerted via other means in the meantime.
SchoolMessenger is a communication platform used to deliver text messages to mobile phones with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and other important information.
