I keep getting calls saying it’s LaGrange high school and that my child wasn’t in school. I don’t have a child and I called the school to take me off the call list, I’ve still received calls.
This is a number from a school to let you know info on a child missed a class or missed school.
Legit Number--One Call Now. Normally shows up on caller ID as "One Call" but didn't so I didn't answer. Saw this page called it back and it was One Call which is a group message from hubs employer.
This is indeed One Call Now, used by all kinds of companies, schools, and municipalities to send a broadcast message. In my case, it was from my Realtor association reminding me to pay my dues. I followed the info in one of the comments below to call the number back and hear my message. It worked just like the OP stated it would.
Those instructions are:
If you get a call from 877-698-3261 and no message is left, call the numnber back. The first option says "To hear your group's latest message, please press 1." Press "1" and then enter your phone number and the system will automatically replay the message that was sent to you.
Call left VM. First part of VM was cut off but the message stated that they had not received an annual service maintenance fee. They left a 202 area code number to call back. I don't have any annual service fees due and quite certain this is just another scam artist.
I too am getting these stupid calls for kid soccer signup at the local Dick's sporting good store. No I did not sign up and I also have no kids-in school or otherwise. I am a single middle aged woman. I have a unlisted, non-published number that is fairly new as I recently installed phone service. I may be forced to disconnect this new phone service. I did not want a phone so that I could be harassed by people such as telemarketers, phone hobbyists, etc. I have a life-threatening illness and cannot be bothered at all hours.
If you search 877-698-3261 on Facebook it pulls up Pastor Ray Barnard.
This number will not stop calling! Driving me crazy!
It was a message from our trash company. (letting us know service would be delayed a day. Thanks for telling us yesterday before we actually put the cans out)
This was a legitimate call. It is the service the public schools use to notify use when a child was absent from roll call.
I called this number back and it was a message service from the company that is handling graduation announcements and year book pictures.
This number called in at 5AM waking my family. We did not answer the call.

Message from my trash company about a change in delivery. Seems to be a mass-calling program.
One call is a service companies use to mass call customers. My call was from a bill collector. Here's the description from the front page of their website:

I called and opted out and put on the do not call list. A couple minutes later they called not once but twice, so I wasn't opted out as they had said would happen. This is a good way for a company to get a bad reputation. Maybe they should rename their co. One Call Now & Forever.
Its from One Call Now. Its a new dialing service used by schools and sports teams.
We use it in my town to call sports teams. If you receive a call in error, someone input the phone number wrong.
Its great for sports coaches. Now we only have to make one call instead of 13 or more.
It was a test call from local emergency managment from our local county saying it was just a test call but in the event of an emergency, there would be more information and instructions to follow
I just happened upon this website and thought to look up my work number, and low and behold I found it! I work in Technical Support for One Call Now. To the posters who complained of no message being left, We do apologize for the inconvience. 95% of the time the system works flawlessly, The other 5 can be touch and go.
If you get a call from 877-698-3261 and no message is left, call the numnber back. Yes it is a voice recording, but the first option says "To hear your groups latest message, please press 1." You do that then enter in your phone number and the system will automatically replay the message that was sent to you.
Hope this clears up any confusion on our part.
According to "T" below, I asked for these calls. I'm 60 and no kids in any school. Trust me, I have signed up for nothing. Just another annoying call that the Do Not Call registry doesn't prevent.
This call is generated by a school or sports team, any organization that is using the ONE CALL NOW system. If you're getting this call, it's because you signed up for it. They're alerting you to some meeting, sports practice, school closure, something that you need to know.
They called my cell phone and all i heard was static in the lines nothing more nothing less.
