      Hmm... interesting... Free web-based program to send updates to parents and students via text message. They subscribe online and you don't ever have to know their phone numbers and they never have to know yours. So smart, and a great way to keep kids and parents up-to-the-minute. I wonder if we could get our district to sign up for this to notify for school closings
