To receive text message alerts:

To avoid having to watch the local news, you can set up text message alerts for your cell phone that let you know if Montessory Academy is closed.

  1. In your web browser, go to: http://my.textcaster.com/asa/Default.aspx?ID=40225cd7-34ef-4d4c-b5e6-8694573f4249

  2. Fill in the information – scroll WAY down to “3e – King County,” then keep scrolling until you see “Spring Valley Montessori” and check that box.

  3. Click Continue.
    They will send a text message to your phone with an authorization code.

  4. Enter the authorization code on the web page, then click Continue.
    You’re all set. Next time there is weather or a power outage that closes our school, you will receive a text message about it.

    Later, if you want to change the text message settings, go to the following site:
    http://my.textcaster.com/asa/ManageSubscription.aspx?ID=40225cd7-34ef-4d4c-b5e6-8694573f4249

    (Note that this will only work if you have a cell phone plan that includes texting. Your normal texting rates apply to these texts.)

Whether you watch television, or look on the web, look for "Federal Way Public Schools."
