Inclement Weather Alerts

East Washington School Corporation has implemented SchoolMessenger, a quick alert messaging service that is being utilized to communicate weather related closures/delays, emergencies, attendance, and general communications such as important school announcements or events.

Please ensure that your child's school has your wireless number(s) in the corporation's student information database (PowerSchool). Please contact your child's school if you haven't already provided that information.

One feature of SchoolMessenger is the ability to send text message alerts. In order to participate in the text message service, you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and will only take a few moments to complete. Follow the steps below:

  1. Text "SUBSCRIBE" to the number 68453. If at anytime you wish to stop receiving text alerts, text "UNSUBSCRIBE" to 68453.
  2. If you subscribed successfully you will receive the following message: "You are registered to receive aprox 3 msgs/mo. Text STOP to quit, HELP for help."
  3. You will need to repeat this opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you wish to include.

Please note, although the corporation does not charge for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text alerts. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
