Text Messaging for Parents

Text Messaging for Parents
Posted on 09/28/2020

Hastings Public Schools seeks to provide parents and guardians with important information in the timeliest and most efficient manner.  Current laws require the District to ask for consent prior to using an automatic service to send text messages to quickly notify parents and guardians.  These communications may include unexcused absence notification and emergency communications, including health and safety risks, threats, closures, fire as well as important non-emergency matters. You can opt-in to the Text Message Service through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal.

Opt-In Consent Statement: 

By enabling the Text (SMS) boxes in your Campus Portal Account, you are consenting to receive text message alerts to the phone number(s) you have identified and are responsible for all related charges. 

You may opt out of this service at any time by simply un-checking the Text (SMS) box in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. 

All Emergency text messages and subsequent alerts will come from 822-90.  Please save this codes as a contact and program it as Hastings Public Schools so you can quickly recognize this number as the official source of our messages.
