New SMS Text Messaging Service Available to Parents
Hastings Public Schools is excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance communication by allowing
the district to deliver important information to parents via SMS text messaging. This service is not intended to replace
existing means of communication, rather it will enhance them. The district will only use the service to provide information
that is timely and relevant.
In order to participate in the new service, you must have a cell phone on file with the School District, and then parents
must indicate willingness to receive text messages to their phones. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to
Step 1 - Confirm Your Wireless Cell Phone Numbers in our Student Database
The following directions on updating your student’s information is intended for Middle School & High School
Parents Only.
Elementary Parents will need to update or add their cell phone numbers manually by adding or correcting their
student’s Information Card at their Elementary Open House in August:
1. Log into your SchoolView Account by clicking on SchoolView at the top of any of our School Webpages:
If you have forgotten your Username or password, click on the “I forgot my username/password” link to reset your
password or retrieve your forgotten username.
2. Select a student in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
3. In the black tool bar at the top of the screen, select the drop down menu under the account holder name and
select the �My info’ option.
4. Review the primary phone number for the student. Also review the email addresses and phone numbers for head
of household #1 and #2. You can list up to 3 phone numbers for each head of household.
Note: This is where you should make sure that all cell phones that you wish to receive SMS Text
Message on, are listed.
5. Click on the blue Update button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.
Step 2 – “Opting In” to Use New Service
Once you have determined that your cell phone is on file with the district simply text the following word join to the number
If you just added your cell phone number to our database you will need to wait a day until you opt into the
service – it will take a day for our system to upload the new information to our system.
You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message from Synrevoice Alerts saying: “Thanks for
joining school alerts”
You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you have listed in our database on which you wish
to receive the text messages.
The official service launch date is October 1, 2013, so until then you will not receive further messages.
Please note, although the district does not charge for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that
may be incurred for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges
that you may incur to your cell phone.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Deanna Werner in the District Office via email at or by phone at 651-480-7002.
