Text Alerts, Announcements, and Reminders

Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District uses the SchoolMessenger notification system to provide timely communication to parents and staff members on matters such as attendance, lunch balances, transportation, school activities, and emergencies.  This system is designed to send phone calls, emails, and text messages; allowing you to select how you prefer to be contacted. 
The district will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant. 
 
To participate in the text messaging 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 68453: subscribe, option, 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 ensure that the district has your current wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven’t already provided that information to your school, do so.
