I found an article from the ClickPress, dated Aug 16, 2006, about a unique service for schools, teachers, and parents using TeacherWeb, Inc. (a leading educational website provider). Teachers can send automatic text messages to parents’ cell phones as a News Flash. This is another means to keep the lines of communication open between parents and teachers. It also provides a means to notify parents of emergencies as well school closings, changes in test schedules, etc. The possibilities for this text-messaging capability to parents is endless…. I had never heard of this capability before. Maybe, we do not have this website provider in this county.
