How do I enable or change parent daily alerts?

Log into the parent portal and choose the child, and then select the parent or caregiver you would like to update. Find the toggle at the bottom of the caregiver information screen and ensure that text and/or email preference is correct. The toggle should be positioned to the right. When enabled the parent will receive a text and/or email on arrival and dismissal of the student. Click update.

Update parent text options.

How do I disable text messages coming to my phone?

The parent user can login and disable messaging or the Admin can login to any profile and change the communication preferences for that individual. The receiver of an unwanted text message can also reply with any of: STOP, STOPALL, UNSUBSCRIBE, CANCEL, END, or QUIT. However, it is preferable to login and change user preferences.
