If your child is attending school in Palm Beach County, you'll soon be getting text message alerts from his or her school.

The Palm Beach County School District is working right now to obtain cell phone information and permission from parents and guardians. The notification system will be used for district-related issues and emergencies such as during a hurricane.

The messages will also include school-related details like reminders about school events and low lunch money balances.

In the past, parents have been contacted through email and mass phone messages.

You can find the details on signing up for text alerts on the new and returning student registration form and it will soon be on the Edline website.
