A school needed to notify parents of an active school lock-down due to police activity in the area. Phone calls and emails are often delayed, so MySchoolSMS was used to notify over 500 parents regarding the situation. Updates were sent out via text message every 15 minutes until the issue was resolved.


A recent storm in the Midwest left many schools scrambling to notify parents about delayed openings. Despite best efforts using email, Facebook and voice-mail, many parents were out of the loop and showed up to a closed school. Using MySchoolSMS, a local school was able to send a text message to every parent informing them of the late start. Thanks to the immediately delivery of the text message, everyone was informed of the late start and all students arrived at the proper time.
