WCPS to Launch Text Messaging Service

WCPS to Launch Text Messaging Service on Monday Nov. 8th
 
On Monday November 8th, Wicomico County Public Schools will begin using our SchoolMessenger system to send SMS Text messages to parents and staff of Wicomico County Public Schools for emergency broadcasts, school closings, delays, safety, academic, extracurricular, and other important school and district announcements.
 
*This will not replace current school communication methods. This will add to the number of ways you already receive important school information.
 
All WCPS parents, guardians, and staff members, will receive a one-time text message to the primary contact cell phone number on file during the evening of NOVEMBER 8th. That message will give you the option to OPT-IN (CONTINUE receiving) or OPT-OUT (STOP receiving) of further text messages from Wicomico Public Schools. You can opt-out of receiving messages at any time. You’ll recognize the text message as it will be from “WicoSchls”.
 
Your school principal will also be advising you of this SMS text messaging service during their weekly message to parents and staff.  So be on the lookout for our Opt-In/Opt-out text message on Monday November 8th, sometime after 5:30pm.
