Parent Communication

Palliser School Division and RIBMS will be taking advantage of another form of communication to best serve families. The district uses the SchoolMessenger notification service to send important information to families through phone calls, emails, and now text messages.

To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, you may receive a text message on the wireless cell phone number which the district has on your file, requesting that you "opt-in" to receive important information from the district via our SMS text messaging service.

The message you receive will come from our 'short code', 978338 and read similar to the following:

"Palliser Regional Schools SMS messages. Reply Y to subscribe or STOP to cancel. Msg & data rates may apply. Msg freq varies. Visit for info"

So that you may continue to receive these important messages, we encourage you to reply with "Y" or "Yes" when you receive such a verification message. If you do not reply, you will not receive any further text messages from our schools.

To opt-out of all text messages from SchoolMessenger, visit or reply with "STOP" to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt-in, but later decide to opt-out, simply send "STOP" to 978338. You may also reply "STOP" to any message from our organization.

Please check with your wireless carrier for information about your mobile service plan and any possible charges related to text messaging. Our organization does not reimburse for any charges associated with sending or receiving text messages.
