How to Receive Text Alerts from Schodack CSD
As part of Schodack CSD's continued efforts to improve communication, the district is now offering text alerts for parents who would like to receive them on their cell phones. The district will send text alerts for school delays, school closings, and other important announcements.
How to Sign Up
Text the word Join to the short code 56360 in the phone number field using the phone you would like to receive text messages on.
- If the district already has your phone number on file, you will receive a message confirming you are all set to receive text alerts.
- If the district does not have your phone number on file, you will receive a message asking you to contact the district so we can enter your phone number. Please call the District Office at 732-2297, option 1. Please note, you will have to text Join to 56360 again the following day to subscribe (the system updates overnight).
We recommend parents create an entry in their phone's contact list for "Schodack CSD" and the phone number 56360. This will help make it clear that the text is coming from the district.
How to Unsubscribe
Parents can unsubscribe anytime by sending a text message to 56360 with the word Stop in the message.
At the end of each month, parents will also receive a text message asking if they would like to unsubscribe from the text alerts.
Cell Service Fees May Apply
Please note that your cell phone carrier may charge you for texts and data rates may apply. If you have any questions, please contact your cell phone's carrier.
Also, some cell phone carriers do not support short code processing. If your cell phone service is provided by such a carrier, you will not be able to subscribe to SMS messaging even though your phone supports SMS messaging from regular phone numbers.
