Saint Louis Public Schools uses School Messenger for robocalls and texting families. Please review these FAQs about texting:I received a text message from Saint Louis Public Schools. Why am I receiving this?
The text message you received is the district’s opt-in invitation message. It was sent by SchoolMessenger for Saint Louis Public Schools. To continue receiving informational messages from SLPS, please reply YES. If you do not reply to this invitation message, you will not receive any future SLPS texts from SchoolMessenger unless you take steps to opt-in.
How do I opt in to receive text messages if I did not receive the invitation text?
Text the word YES to 67587 from your wireless device(s). Device numbers must be listed in SIS under “Household Parent 1” and “Household Parent 2.” Mobile numbers listed under the “Home Telephone 1” field will also be included. Please allow 24 hours for data synchronization to take place.
How do recipients opt out of receiving text messages?
To stop receiving text messages on a particular number, text STOP to 67587 at any time, or opt-out online at http://schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg.
I opted in, but I’m not receiving texts?
Ensure that the district has your correct mobile number in the SIS Parent Portal. It will take up to 24 hours for this number to be active after being changed or added to the district’s system. Next, send a text with the word YES from that mobile device to 67587. You should receive an opt-in confirmation message.
Will I be charged for the SLPS text messages that I receive from SchoolMessenger?
SchoolMessenger does not charge recipients for the text messages that they receive or send to the short code; however, wireless providers may charge for individual text messages depending on the plan associated with the wireless device.
