Onslow County Schools is excited to announce the launch of a new service that will enhance communication by allowing us to deliver important information to you via SMS text messaging.  This service is not intended to replace our existing means of communication-rather it will enhance them.

The service is provided by School Messenger.  Information can be found at

The district will only use the service to provide information that is timely and relevant.

In order to participate in the new service you must indicate your willingness to receive text messages to your phone. The process is simple and only takes a few seconds to complete.

Simply text any one of the following words to the number 68453, subscribe, optin, yes

You'll know you were successful if you receive the following reply message:

You are registered to receive aprox. 3 msgs/mo.  Txt STOP to quit, HELP for help.

You'll want to repeat the opt-in process for any wireless numbers that you wish to include.

In addition to performing the opt-in process above you'll want to insure that Jacksonville High School has your wireless number(s) in our student information database. If you haven't already provided that information to us please contact us and provide us with that information.

Onslow County Schools will be officially launching the new service in December, so until then you won't receive any further text messages.

Please note, although Onslow County schools does not charge you for this service, it does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
