• Alert: Attention Parents/Guardians: We will be changing the method of how you receive texts from our BrightArrow Notification Software. This new method requires that you provide approval to continue to receive our texts. Our notification provider will be sending a text message seeking your approval to continue to receive text messages from us. Please reply “YES” to the text message. From then on you will be receiving all text messages from 87569 that are from us once you give your text reply approval. If you DON'T reply yes, then you will NO longer be receiving text messages from our school district. We will be sending out a test message on Friday, November 15th to test our software as well as allow you to reply "Yes" to continue receiving texts from the BrightArrow Notification Software.
