Emergency Information

Introducing School Messenger
Waynesboro Public Schools is excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance communication by allowing us to deliver important information to you via SIM text messaging, phone calls, and/ore-mail. The School Messenger Notification System will alert parents and staff on matters such as:

  • School Closings
  • Early Dismissals
  • Attendance
  • Special Activities
  • School Emergencies
  • Transportation

Opt-in By Text Message
To “opt-in” to receive text messages, simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453: subscribe, opt in, yes. You will know you were successful if you receive the following reply message: You are registered to receive aprox 3 msg/mo. Text STOP to quit, HELP for help.

Opt-in By Phone
It’s easy! Just make sure your child’s school has your current cellphone and home phone numbers in its database. You will be automatically set up to receive messages by phone.

Opt-in By Email
Make sure your child’s school has your current e-mail address and you will automatically be set up to receive messages by e-mail. This system replaces Mail Chimp for e-mail notifications.
