NWCS Notifications

NWCS Notifications: Unfortunately, we had glitches with parents receiving text messages because of this morning's fog issues. Here is what we have learned.

Recently the FCC has given wireless phone carriers the ability to block text messages with little oversight. Consequently, carriers have been blocking long code texts (texts which originate from 10-digit phone numbers).

In response, eSchoolView (Instant Connect) has partnered with BrightArrow so they can offer short code texting from the originating number 87569. A short code number is much less likely to be blocked because eSchoolView has signed a contract with the major carriers promising that the texts will not be SPAM and that all recipients have opted in to receive texts. 

As you began to receive text messages from NWCS this year, you may have been asked already to reply YES to Opt in. If you did, you are all set. 

If you did not reply, have a correct contact phone number in PowerSchool, and you want to continue to receive text messages, text the word Yes to the number 87569. That will ensure you continue to receive messages from NWCS.

If you need further assistance, you can call 622-4125 and ask for Jeff Miller, Tech Director.

Thank you!
