Parent Permission Needed to Send Non-Emergency Messages to Phones

Under a federal law designed to protect consumers, all schools must have permission to send non-emergency messages to a phone by automated voice call or SMS text. (See information below on how to opt into receiving text messages.)  As a result of the new regulations, Southern Columbia Area needs to get your permission to continue calling you with our SchoolMessenger system for non-emergency school situations.
