You can participate in this free service* just by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 68453.

You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy PledgeTM, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

Information on SMS text messaging and Short Codes:
S
MS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a “text message”. Most cell phones support this type  of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting.  This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers. If you’ve ever sent a text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.


Attendance Matters

Attendance Matters logo
Common sense tells us that kids who miss school miss opportunities to learn. Some absences are just unavoidable. But, how much is too much? New research tells us that missing an average of just two days a month makes a child much more likely to fail a subject or to not graduate from high school. This research also points out that parents often underestimate the effects of missing school. It's in everyone's interest that students are at school the vast majority of the time. Thank you for making attendance a priority at Linford Elementary School. For more information feel welcome to visit the website below.
