Late Bus Text Notifications

Sep 6, 2018

Parents and Guardians You and your students can take advantage of ourText Messaging Service

Inclement weather, traffic and mechanical issues can cause buses to be delayed. Transportation can send a text message straight to your mobile phone if your child’s school bus is delayed either to or from school.

Parents and students who would like to receive late bus texts can “opt-in” to the notification system by texting “YES” to short code 67587. You should receive an opt-in confirmation message from the service.  If you do not get a verification message, check with your campus registrar to make sure your cell phone number is listed as your student’s best contact number.

You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop.” Opting out of late bus text notifications will also discontinue text notifications for inclement weather or any other emergency communications.

Bus information text notifications are sent to cell phones. To update cell phone number(s) call or email your campus Registrar. It may take 24 hours for the updated number to be active after being changed or added to the District’s system. The District is not responsible for carrier charges. Dispatchers are instructed to prioritize safety issues. Therefore the District cannot guarantee the reliability of a text notification.
