UPDATING AND UNSUBSCRIBING: When people continue to get email from a school or news selection they have removed or after they have unsubscribed, it is most often because they have opened more than one account and only changed one. For help: FindOutFirst@fcps.org
SMS TEXT MESSAGES: FCPS only uses text messaging when unexpectedly closing. All other FindOutFirst messaging is via email.
*Free email services such as gmail deliver our emergency notices, whereas cable TV companies serving as Internet Service Providers may block emergency email from ezcommunicator.com because it goes to so many subscribers.
You may register up to 2 email addresses for each FindOutFirst account.
