School Messenger Text Alert System

Bellevue City Schools uses the SchoolMessenger system to phone, email, and text announcements, school closures, and other vital information.   If you signed up to receive a text message, the system requires you to Opt IN by respond to a text message from a "Short-code" number 68453.   (Short-code simply means that it doesn't look like a real phone number) The text from 68453 asks you if you would receive text messages.  This 68453 number belongs to SchoolMessenger.   There is no way to identify that this 68453 number is from the SchoolMessenger system or Bellevue City Schools.   It is safe to respond with a Y or Yes to confirm this number.   Or if you change your mind and no longer want to receive texts, send a text message to the same number 68453 with an N or NO in the subject line.   If there are still problems, you can test to see if your cellular provider has turned off your ability to receive Short code messages, by texting HELP to the same 68453 number.  If nothing comes back, your service provider is blocking, or has not enable the Short-code service for your phone.   You can then work with your cell phone provider to allow this particular number
