Seminole County Public Schools is pleased to announce that we are now able to send
announcements via SMS text messaging to your mobile phones.
If you would like to receive these announcements as text messages, please do the following:
Step 1. Ensure your school has your cell phone number on file through our Skyward database.
If the school did not have your cell phone number on file and added it,
wait at least 24 hours before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2. From your cell phone, text the word “Join” to the number 56360.
If our messaging system finds a match for your number in its database,
you receive a confirmation message thanking you for joining school alerts.
At any time, you can unsubscribe by texting “Stop” to 56360.
Step 3. Create a contact on your phone with the name of your school or simply
SCPS (if you have children in multiple schools in the district), or another meaningful name,
and the phone number 56360. Then, when you receive a text from this number, you know who is sending it.
