Sign up for Text Messaging to Get Real-Time Information on Bus Delays
EPS has a text messaging service for middle school and high school bus riders and their parents. Text messaging allows us to deliver important information about school closings, bus delays, and more via SMS text messaging.
Steps to Subscribe:
You can participate in this free service just by sending a text message of “Opt in” (NO HYPHEN) to our schools’ shortcode number of 67587. Before subscribing you will need to ensure that the district has your wireless number(s) in its student information database, Infinite Campus. Parents/guardians must have a cell phone number listed in the cell phone field in their account. For each parent/guardian who has an Infinite Campus account, both accounts will need a cell number listed if both parents/guardians wish to receive text messages. By sending the correct message of “Opt in” (NO HYPHEN) you will get this message back: “You are registered 4 SchoolMessenger notifications. Reply STOP to cancel, HELP for help. (etc)”.
Having Problems Receiving Text Messages?
If you are not receiving text messages, check with your phone carrier to make sure that shortcode messaging is enabled. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
