Urgent - Text alerts from Springston School - Vodaphone issue

We've just become aware that those of you on Vodaphone will not have been receiving our text alerts since March. Vodaphone switched off our ability to send Vodaphone customers text alerts through our Facebook and Twitter system - they did this without notifying anyone - it's a worldwide issue with Vodaphone. Messages are still being received by Spark and 2 Degrees customers. 

This leaves us with a dilemma. Some of you will see our emergency and urgent messages via Facebook, others will still receive texts. Vodaphone customers will now miss out.

Important messages for school closures, buses not running etc, will continue to be posted on our School News Blog and probably class blogs. These are all accessible from our website: but of course, only work when you have electricity or internet access. We will also continue to send out texts for now.

We will do our best to keep you posted, one way or another until we decide on an alternative method!

These two messages were sent out by text earlier today:

Second hand clothing sale cancelled today.

Watching weather forecast, keep an eye out for text alerts (and reports on our news blog).
