Dates to Remember for 2012-13 School Year
►LAST DAY OF SCHOOL
We are currently using the SchoolMessenger communication system to send important announcements to you. SchoolMessenger offers you the ability to determine how you would like to receive the different types of messages. If you would like to receive messages in a different manner (different phone number, additional phone number, email, text, etc.) please call Shannon Ames (714) 990-7533 at the District Office to make those changes.
Parent Education Opportunity
SOCIAL MEDIA FOR PARENTS will be presented by Brea Olinda High School's Global Information Technology students on Thursday, May 16, 6-8 p.m. at the Brea Olinda High School Computer Lab, Room 219. Students will present an overview of the most relevant social media tools and local experts will give tips on how best to provide safe boundaries for youth. Call to reserve your spot: Brea Family Resource Center, 714-990-7150.
New Marquee Celebrations
Brea Junior High has a new special way to celebrate your student! You can now purchase a message to be displayed on the electronic marquee! Ten dollars for an entire day celebrates a birthday, congratulates a sports victory, or salutes a very special occasion in your student’s life. Forms with specific details are available in the main office. All proceeds from MARQUEE CELEBRATIONS will go to support classroom technology.
Technology Alert Regarding Text Messages through School Messenger
The Brea Olinda Unified School District uses the School Messenger notification service to send important information to families through phone calls, emails, now, via text message. You may soon receive a message to the wireless cell phone number that the district has on file. The message will ask that you respond to “opt-in” or “opt-out” for receiving school text messages.
The message you receive will be similar to the following:
“BOUSD alerts. Reply Y to receive mesgs. Txt HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. Visit schoolmessenger.com/tm”
So that you can continue to receive these important messages from your student’s school, we encourage you to reply with “Y” or “yes” or “OPTIN” when you receive such a verification message.
To opt out of all text messages from School Messenger, visit http://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg/ or reply with “STOP” to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt-in, but decide to opt-out later on, you may also reply “STOP” to any message or send “STOP” to 68543.
The school district does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.
