Have You Opted in to Receive Lakota Text Messages?

Lakota’s mass notification system, powered by School Messenger, uses something called “short code” texting to send text messages to parent and staff mobile devices, when necessary. This method is highly reliable and fast because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers themselves. With that access comes some strict federal requirements for Lakota to gain opt-in verification from those on the receiving end of those text messages.
 
When a new mobile phone number is provided at the time of registration or added/updated through FinalForms, within 24 hours, it will generate an automated opt-in message to this new number from Lakota's short code (675-87). Per federal guidelines, we are required to receive your consent before sending text messages. Simply reply to the message with the letter "Y" to provide consent. 
 
**If you missed the original text message to the device associated with the number you provided to Lakota, you can still provide your consent at any time by texting the letter "Y" to Lakota's short code (675-87).
