DJUSD Parents and Guardians may take advantage of a new
School Emergency Alert Text Messaging Service
New this year! Our school district will utilize the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone for urgent school alerts. Emergency text alerts will be part of centralized Emergency Communications and will be sent only to parent/guardians who opt-in to the service.
You can participate in this free service* just by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587 from a mobile number that is on record with your your school office.
You can also opt-out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

Information on SMS text messaging and Short Codes:
SMS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a "text message". Most cell phones support this type of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting. This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers.
*Terms and Conditions – Message frequency varies. Standard message and data rates may apply. Reply HELP for help. Text STOP to cancel. Mobile carriers are not liable for delayed or undelivered messages. See schoolmessenger.com/txt for more info.
SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy PledgeTM, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.
