Text Messaging for Parents and Guardians

In order to comply with wireless carrier requirements, parents/guardians new to the school system must opt in to receiving HCPSS text message alerts. As you update/add your information in HCPSS Connect/Family File, you will receive a text message prompt from the number 68453 to subscribe to text alerts. You must opt in by replying to the text message with a text that simply says Y. Standard data fees and text messaging rates may apply based on your mobile plan.
