Get Text Messages from RV

In addition to calling you with a voice message, we also have the ability to send text updates to the phone number we have on file for you as an RV parent. To receive the full text message you will need to "opt-in" by texting "YES" to 87569. This will give our system permission to send important updates about RV through our texting system.  
Allowing text messages will not remove you from the voice message list. However many parents find receiving our messages by text to be a much faster and less intrusive way to access information from our district.
