Opt In to Receive Text Messages

If you have a mobile phone number on file with your school you’ll get a text (SMS) message on July 19. 

This message is NOT spam. 

Reply Y

This allows you receive general SMS messages from your school. You can also text Y to our new six-digit SMS number: 978338.

What If I Do Not Reply?

If you do not respond, you will not receive any SMS messages (general, commercial, or emergency) from your school.

What If I Have Previously Opted In?

Because we’re changing the SMS number our messages are sent from, you must opt in again to be able to receive any SMS messages from your school.

Not all schools send text messages, but opting in will ensure that you receive any messages that they do send. There is no extra cost to receive SMS messages from the CBE, but standard message rates and data charges from your carrier may apply when you receive messages from us.
