GCS Notification System - SchoolMessenger

You will automatically receive calls to your phones.  However, you will need to “opt in” if you wish to receive text messages through the new system.  If you would like to receive texts and have not yet opted in, please text “Y” to 67587.     

You will be able to opt out of these text messages at any time by simply replying “stop” to any one of our messages.  

Parents and staff members will now have the ability to decide which types of calls they would like to receive on which devices. Create an account in the School Messenger Info. Center to make your selections.  You may also opt out of any type of telephone notification by pressing "5" during the call.

School Messenger also has a free app available at the App Store and Google Play.
