FPS IS ADDING TEXT MESSAGING

Similar to how we send out emails and phone calls, FPS will soon be able to send text messages to parents. This will only be used for time sensitive situations (school is called off, an alert related to a bus incident, a building situation to keep families informed about, upcoming event details, etc). This service will be added next Tuesday, May 3rd at 4:30pm. Parents and guardians will receive a message from this service that explains steps to take should you choose to opt out. Look for more details in the district newsletter this Friday and in next Monday’s building newsletter!


Note for staff: We are still working to add staff contact information for this feature.
