The Clear Creek Independent School District will be testing its Emergency Text Alert system on Wednesday, November 2, 2016. The emergency text alert system will be activated to ensure we have the right cell phone number(s) based on the information you provided at the beginning of the school year. Standard text message rates do apply. The message will be generated from SchoolMessenger, the same communications system the District utilizes for emails and call outs. The district-wide message will read:
“Clear Creek Independent School District messages. Reply Y for aprx 3 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. See schoolmessenger.com/tm”
If you would like to receive emergency text messages from CCISD, you must opt-in by replying “Y” or “Yes” or “Optin” or “Subscribe”. If you do not want to receive text messages, reply with Stop.
General Questions and Answers:
