Get School Closings Sent
to Your Cell Phone or Email 
You must have text messaging service set up
to receive these messages on your phone.

Washington County Schools is using this system to notify subscribers in case of an emergency or schedule change via text message to their cell phone, email, or both. If you would like a text message sent to your phone, you will need to enter your cell phone number and your cell phone provider info in this fashion: 4235551234@providername . You will need to look up your exact provider name below:

Verizon/Alltel: 10digitphonenumber@vtext.com

AT&T: 10digitphonenumber@txt.att.net

Sprint: 10digitphonenumber@messaging.sprintpcs.com

T-Mobile: 10digitphonenumber@tmomail.net

Nextel: 10digitphonenumber@messaging.nextel.com

Cingular: 10digitphonenumber@cingularme.com

Virgin Mobile: 10digitphonenumber@vmobl.com

CellularOne: 10digitphonenumber@mobile.celloneusa.com

Omnipoint: 10digitphonenumber@omnipointpcs.com

Qwest: 10digitphonenumber@qwestmp.com

 

Example: So lets say that your cell phone number is 423-555-1234 and your company is Nextel. You will enter
4235551234@messaging.nextel.com

  • Do not enter a 1 at the beginning: 14235551234@messaging.nextel.com
  • Do not put dashes in the phone number: 423-555-1234@messaging.nextel.com
  • Do not make up the provider name but use the ones from the list: 4235551234@nextel.com
  • Do not use all caps: 4235551234@MESSAGING.NEXTEL.COM
  • Watch yourself for typos (Verizon is easy to type wrong!)
  • Phone numbers not entered correctly will not work
