Spring ISD has an automated messaging system that allows the district to communicate with parents and staff quickly and efficiently via phone call, text/sms message and email. The system is only effective, however, if the district has accurate contact information for those groups.
“Now more than ever, parents and staff need to stay connected and be well-informed about decisions that are being made and resources that are available to our families while schools are closed,” said Chief Communications Officer Tiffany Dunne-Oldfield.
Sometimes people choose or accidentally opt out of receiving the callouts and text messages and change their mind later. Spring ISD parents and staff who would like to opt back in to receive phone and text/sms messages, may do so by following the following instructions:
- Phone calls: Call the Blackboard Phone Hotline at “855-502-STOP (855-502-7867)” from the phone line that has been opted out.
- Text (SMS) messages: Reply START to “60680” from the phone line that has been opted out for non-emergency messages. Reply START to “54968” for emergency messages.
