They appear to be 'Short Codes' from businesses/websites used for verification along with other reasons.  You can extract the six digits (removing the dash and trailing zeroes) and search for more info on them at https://www.textingworld.com/short-codes/usa

Good evening, Mamabear86! Jav6 is correct, they look like short code numbers. Have you spoken to your child regarding these texts and seeing what is displayed?
