Text Messaging Service Now Available to Parents
11/21/2013 12:20:55 PM
Hastings Public Schools is excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance communication by allowing the district to deliver important information to parents via SMS text messaging.

This service is not intended to replace existing means of communication, rather it will enhance them. 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 have a cell phone on file with the School District, and then parents must indicate willingness to receive text messages to their phones. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.

Please click above for more information on how to opt into this new service.
