HUDSON ISD DOES NOT maintain a database of students’s personal phone numbers. 
Communication with students should be done via SeeSaw, Canvas, Campus Life, or other approved venue that meets TEA guidelines for communicating with students.

High School students that are receiving services from the College and Career Center are given an opportunity to sign up to receive text messages from the CCC Coordinator regarding upcoming testing dates, college visits, application deadlines, etc.  The database is used solely for communicating infromation that pertains to the CCC.  


Help in setting up Custom Lists, using databases pulled from skyward, etc. is just a phone call or text message away.   

We are here to assist at any time.
