    Text Alerts

    KGBSD is excited to announce that this year we will be activating texting capabilities through, SchoolMessenger, the same system that sends out the district’s automated phone calls and emails.  This service is not intended to replace our 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 indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.

Simply text any one of the following words to the number 67587: subscribe, optin, yes. 
You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message:
You are registered 4 SchoolMessenger notifications. Reply STOP to quit, HELP for help.

In addition to performing the opt-in process above you’ll want to insure that the district has your wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven’t already provided that information to your school, do so.
