TEXT OPTION: We’re offering a new way for our families to receive notification of school closings and/or late starts due to inclement winter weather. You will still see notifications on our local television stations (WHBF-TV 4, KWQC-TV 6, and WQAD-TV 8), as well a message on our district website. Now you’ll also be able to receive text alerts directly to your cell phone(s).
Opting in for the text alert is easy. Simply send text the word Yes from each device that you want to receive the text alert to School Messenger (our district notification system) to the short code 68453. Your opt-in means that you are choosing to receive up to 3 text messages per month to this device from the Davenport Community Schools. Message and data rates through your wireless carrier may apply. There is no charge from School Messenger or the Davenport Community School District.
If you don’t want to receive the text alerts you do not need to take any action at all. If you opt-in for the text alerts and then decide you no longer want to receive them, simply text STOP to 68453 at any time.
We hope you will like having this option available to you.
