My kid’s school runs an email address which is cleared by parents, for parents to send their concerns / questions to.
They want to publish a cell phone number which can receive SMSs and send them to the email address, as some parents do not have easy access to email.
The email is cleared via a webmail client, and the originating cell number should be available so that feedback can be sent back to the parent (by SMS or phone call).
Can you recommend a service? A free or near-free service would be ideal.
