Get ready to get texts

Sending text alerts for emergencies, important events, and information is a critical part of the district’s communications strategy to keep Dallas ISD team members informed and up to date on weather closures, districtwide deadlines, news and more. For this to happen, team members’ main contact cell phone numbers must be in the correct field in Oracle, and they must opt-in using the number they provided to receive text messages from the district.  

There are two steps to follow to receive text messages:

  1. Go to Oracle and enter your  main contact cell phone number in the Home field in Oracle where they update their contact information.
  2. Using the cell phone whose number you provided, opt-in by texting Yes to the 67587 short code number.

Flyers with instructions have been distributed to all departments and campuses. If you have any questions about text messaging or need additional information, please, send an email to
