Opting In to Receive Text Messages

Inclement weather can close schools. Hawthorn District 73 notifies families of closings, safety alerts and other events through phone and email messages. Text messaging is also available. However, parents need to opt-in to utilize this service. If you would like to receive text messages, first contact your student’s school to verify that they have the correct cell phone number on file. You can then manually opt in by texting “Y” to 67587. There is no charge for this initial text message, however message/data rates may apply for subsequent messages sent by the District. If you wish to opt out at a later date, you may do so by texting “STOP” to 67587.
