Public Information for SMS Opt-In
Posted on 08/08/2019
Announcement bannerThe West Platte School District is rolling out a new communications platform known as SchoolMessenger Communicate. This program will allow the district to quickly and efficiently contact parents and guardians with important updates about emergencies, school closures, and other important events. Currently, the system is configured to send phone and e-mail messages and we are now providing support for SMS text messaging. In order to receive messages via SMS text, recipients must opt-in by sending “Y” or “Yes”, via text message, to our SchoolMessenger short code number, 67587.

You can ensure your contact information is up-to-date by completing e-registration on the district’s PowerSchool site at: https://westplatte.powerschool.com/public/home.html The district will be sending an opt-in invitation to all numbers in our student information system on August 30th, 2019 starting at 3:00 PM. If you do not wish to receive any further communications from the district via text messaging you can simply ignore this message, or send STOP to 67587 to manually opt-out of further SMS messaging.
