Going forward you should receive all MUS text messages from the shortcode number 87569. If you received the message and did not text back the word YES, you can text it to the number: 87569 at any time. If you have not received any text messages from us this year, we may not have your cell phone number in our database. You will need to update your profile information HERE.
Why did we make this change? Due to the FCC changing SPAM-blocking restrictions recently, wireless phone carriers are blocking an increasing number of texts originating from 10-digit phone numbers. Texting YES to 87569 provides your approval to continue receiving our texts. This is important because our text system is used for Owls Alert texts (emergencies and school closures because of weather) as well as sports team updates.
You control how you receive all other news, group, or team notifications from MUS by your profile settings – so review them by logging in to musowls.org, selecting the dropdown button beside your name, and clicking Settings and Notifications.
You can always see an archive of MUS emails (including Friday News Flashes) under your Resources tab and selecting the Email Archive Resource Board.
