Text Messages to Parents

We would like to share some information regarding a new SMS text messaging service that we are in the process of launching. The service is scheduled to launch today.  If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment to complete the simple opt-in process below, if you are interested.  The service is provided by SchoolMessenger. Information can be found at

In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.

Simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453: subscribe, optin, yes

You’ll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message: You are registered to receive aprox 3 msgs/mo. Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help.

You’ll want to repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you wish to include.

In addition to performing the opt-in process above you’ll want to insure that New Bridge has your

wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven’t already provided that information to New Bridge, please contact us and provide the numbers as soon as possible.  In order to participate, we need your number on file with the school AND we need you to opt-in.

We’ve taken steps to comply with wireless carrier requirements and to protect you against unsolicited text messages.  If you opt-in, the text messages you will receive from New Bridge will be short, weather/closing related and very important.   We will not inundate your phone with messages.   If you haven’t opted in your wireless number, you may receive the following one-time opt-in invitation today to any numbers the district has on file for you.   The message is as follows:

 “Onslow County School District messages. Reply Y for aprx 3 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. See”

So that you can continue to receive important messages from the district, we encourage you to reply with “Y” or “Yes” or “OPTIN” or “SUBSCRIBE” when you receive such a verification message.

If you do not wish to receive any further messages you can simply disregard the message or simply reply with STOP to the opt-in message that you receive, or you can visit

Please note, although the district does not charge you for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
