School Messenger - Text Messaging Opt-in Requirement

As indicated in our last email introducing the transition to School Messenger, due to new federal regulations regarding mass messaging, there is a need to opt-in to the text messaging service should you desire to be contacted in that manner.


Between now and the start of the school year, there are two ways that you can enable this service:


  • Follow the directions on this FLYER and you will be able to immediately activate your ability to receive texts through School Messenger.

  • Wait until Monday, August 19, 2019.  At approximately 1 p.m., if you have a cell phone number connected to your child in Genesis, you will receive a text message from School Messenger providing the ability to opt-in to receive text messages.  Simply reply to the text and it will activate your ability to receive texts through School Messenger.

Please be aware that while most plans include unlimited texting, it is important to remember that standard text message rates will apply to all texts that are sent to your device.


During each back to school night, the text messaging opt-in option will be explained and available.
