Sign up for SchoolMessenger Our District uses School Messenger Notification System for important information such as school closings. If your child is enrolled in our schools and you would like to receive text messages from Anchor Bay School District, send a text message to (67587) with the words “opt in” or “subscribe” as the message. We checked the reports that are issued by School Messenger and found that many of the text messages (SMS) were being reported as BLOCKED. This means that parents who received a text message from School Messenger during the initial set up didn’t respond back. School Messenger assumes that you DO NOT want text messages if they do not receive a response. Send a text message to (67587) with the words “opt in” or “subscribe” as the message to correct the issue.
