Text Message Opt-In text messaging on phone

The Charles City Community School System uses a variety of communication tools to keep you informed about what’s happening at school. We transitioned this year to a new school text messaging, email, and phone calling system called School Messenger.


In order to receive text messages from this system you have to “opt-in”. If you have given us a mobile phone number as your contact, on September 30, around 10 AM you will receive a message from 68453 asking you to reply with ‘Y’. If you would like to receive text messages from the school please follow these instructions. The typical message is when we change plans due to weather. If you have questions please e-mail us.

Contact an Iowa Legislator Iowa Capitol Building

The Iowa Legislature is more than 403 days delinquent in setting supplemental state aid (SSA) for the 2016-17 school year. Not knowing what the SSA allocation is forces schools across the state to budget at a 0% increase. Schools are required to certify their budget by April 15, 2016. 
This is part of the reason there is uncertainty in the District budget for next year.

Parents and community members are urged to take three minutes to contact the Iowa Legislature and urge them to set SSA quickly. 

If you wish to contact the Iowa Legislature please follow this link to find a legislator or Des Moines leadership.
