Have you opted in for Manitas Text Messages?

Have you opted in to receive Text Alerts from Kyrene School District and Manitas? You'll receive important updates and alerts ranging from early release reminders to school events. Connect with your school to today and text “Y” or “YES” to 67587 from the mobile device you wish to receive text messages. There is no charge from SchoolMessenger for this service, however standard message and data rates may apply. 


If you do not receive a confirmation text from 67587:

  1. Please contact your child's school office to verify that your mobile number is correct in ParentVUE.
  2. If you receive an error message that "short codes" are blocked on your phone, you will need to contact your phone carrier to "unblock short code texts."
  3. If your phone number is correct, and you are still receiving neither a response nor an error code, your cell phone company may still be blocking "short code texts." Call your carrier to confirm and to request unblocking.
