Opting In to Receive Text Messages

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.

Inclement Weather Update

Hawthorn takes school closings very seriously. Should schools close due to inclement weather or other unforeseen reasons, the district uses an automated emergency notification system to send a recorded voice message to each student’s home telephone number, as provided during registration. Parents have the option of managing their emergency notifications by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal to change telephone numbers, request text messaging, and request email messaging.

When the weather is threatening..

…please be proactive in your efforts to stay informed of any cancellations.

If school is cancelled, all events using our buildings will also be cancelled. Missed days will be made up at the end of the year by adding days to the school calendar.
