PCSD Chat is District's New Text message System for Parents

Park City School District launched a new communications tool today, Oct. 25, in an effort to help parents stay better informed. “PCSD Chat” is a two-way text message system that allows parents/guardians to receive texts from the school district.

“The best part of the system is that it also allows parents to text us,” said Melinda Colton, director of Communications. “This allows us to be more responsive and provide immediate answers.”
Once parents receive the text tomorrow, they can simply add the V-card into their contact list by clicking the link.

Park City is the first school district in the country to use this system which was developed by AtlasRTX, a company based in Park City. “As a Park City parent, I couldn’t be more honored for our company to partner with our own school district,” said Bassam Salem, CEO of AtlasRTX. “This will showcase the future of community engagement: from the convenience of a mobile phone or online, in real-time with district staff backed by an artificial intelligence 'chatbot,' and in any language, so it is inclusive of every member of our community; that is the vision for PCSD Chat.”

The district is just about ready to pilot this text message program this year at the school level at Trailside Elementary and is calling it “Trailside Chat.” If successful, Colton said the system will be available at all PCSD schools at a later date.

“Not only can we text parents about important events, but we can also keep them informed about what the Board is doing and alert them in case of an emergency,” Colton said. “The benefits of having such immediate communication with our parents are endless.”

Community members and employees are welcome to join the texting service by simply texting your first and last name to 435-602-4444 or registering via the PCSD website.

PCSD will continue to use SchoolMessenger to email parents general district announcements.
