More Ways to:

Connection Icon Use SMS For Education

  • Provide Student Absence NotificationsSending parents texts is a discrete way to inform them when their middle or high schooler may be missing school without their permission. You can also use student absence notifications to let parents know how many total days students have been absent or if they need a doctor’s note to come back to school.
  • Create Student Advisor Meeting Reminders And Tutoring HotlinesAdvisor meetings to help students with next semester’s class schedule or scheduling with a tutor are monumental steps toward success for many students. SMS text reminders are a perfect way to do this. A student and their phone are rarely separated, so there are no excuses.
