The Franklin-McKinley School District utilizes Blackboard Connect as our mass notification system. FMSD and your school use Blackboard Connect in order to let you know about emergency situations, school updates, reminders related to your child’s attendance and more.
We use the contact information from your child's registration, emergency cards and Infinite Campus, and sometimes your school may ask you for updated contact information. Please ensure that your contact information is up-to-date by calling the front office at your child’s school or logging into your child's Infinite Campus. FMSD and Blackboard Connect do not share any of your information, and we follow federal regulations on student and user privacy.
Phone Calls & Text Messages
If you provided your mobile phone number, you may receive calls and text messages from FMSD or your child's school. If you do not wish to receive calls and text messages from FMSD, you can reply “STOP” at any time. However, we encourage you to receive calls and text messages from FMSD and your school, as it makes for faster communication, which is crucial in the event of an emergency. If you accidentally unsubscribed from Blackboard Connect calls or text messages, you can:
- Call (855) 502-7867 to be opted in (must be same number that was used to opt out).
- Text "subscribe fmsd" to 23177 to re-subscribe for text messages. To opt in with a new phone number, the information needs to be entered into Infinite Campus by school staff. Call your child's school to make the update.
