Parents - sign up to receive textsregistration  
Beginning with the 2016-17 School Year, all District 200 schools have the capability to communicate with parents via one-way text messaging.

How do I opt-in to receive text notifications?
  • Make sure you have a CELL number listed in ParentVue prior to August 1 and we will automatically opt you in to receive text notifications.
  • If you want to opt-in to text after August 1, enter your cell number in the CELL field in your ParentVue account.
  • Many families have a cell number in the “home” number field because a cell number is their home number. You will still need to list a number in the CELL field in order to receive text notifications. 
What happens after I opt-in?
The District will send out a mass subscription confirmation text on August 1 to all families who have a CELL number listed in ParentVue. 

If I didn’t receive the confirmation text or I want to sign up for text messages after August 1, what do I do?
Check your ParentVue account to make sure you have your CELL number listed correctly in the correct field. If you still do not receive text messages, please contact your school.

Who pays for the text messages?
The receiver is subject to all applicable messaging charges depending on their service provider. Standard message and data rates may apply.

“Who” will I receive text messages from?
All text messages from any District 200 school will come from either 23177 or 63079. Parents can expect a school name reference in the message body.

Note that not every District 200 school may utilize the text messaging communications. If you aren’t sure if your principal uses text messaging to communicate, just ask!
