Please contact Kim Connell at 417-243-4081 with all media inquiries.


SchoolMessenger is an all-encompassing, school-wide communication system.  It is a one-stop-shop for mass communications from teachers, coaches, activity sponsors, and at the building and district levels.  SchoolMessenger is comprised of text messaging, emails, automated phone calls, electronic newsletters, the HSD custom app, and the SchoolMessenger parent app.

Text Messaging Service

Receive text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts, and more. 

You can participate in this free service just by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587.

You can also opt-out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy PledgeTM, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

**The SMS phone (cell phone) number must be on file in our Student Information System (SIS). You can update this information through your parent portal.**

Hollister Schools Mobile App

Download the HSD App for quick access to all your informational needs.  Check out the SchoolMessenger Parent App located within the "hamburger" menu. Available in the App Store and Google Play.
