Parents – Sign up for text messaging

September 18th, 2020

This fall, Pembina Hills School Division is implementing a phone, email and text messaging service called SchoolMessenger. PHSD schools and the division will use it to contact parents and staff quickly and efficiently. SchoolMessenger will be especially important when we need to communicate regarding emergency situations or other important updates.

How to sign up

The text messaging service will be activated on September 24th, 2020.

  • If your child’s school has your cell number on file, you will receive a text message inviting you to OPT-IN.
  • Parents can also sign up before September 24th, by texting “Y” or “Yes” to 978338.

While we strongly encourage parents to participate, the text messaging service is entirely optional. Parents can OPT-OUT at any time by replying “STOP” to any message.

It’s very important that your child’s school has your cell phone number on file to ensure that you receive updates from your school. You may contact your child’s school to ensure the correct phone number is on file.
