Selah Schools now offering text alerts

SELAH, Wash. -- Selah School District has a new way to stay connected with parents. They've installed a text system.

It's a way for the district to alert parents instantly about different events or school closing and delays.

Here's how to sign-up:

  • Ensure your school has your cell phone number on file. If the school Does Not have your cell number on file have them add it and wait at least 24 hours before proceeding to the next step.
  • From your cell phone, text the word Join to the number 56360. If our messaging system finds a match for your number, you will receive a confirmation message thanking you for joining school alerts. At any time, you can unsubscribe by texting the word "Stop" to 56360.
  • Create a contact on your phone with the name of your school or school district (if you have children in multiple schools in the District), or another meaningful name, and the phone number 56360. Then when you receive a text from this number, you know who is sending it.
