Notifications of Closings/Delays
If it becomes necessary to close or delay school due to inclement weather or other reasons, the decision will be made by the Superintendent on the basis of the best information available. Notifications will be made by phone.
  • The District will use school messenger to send a phone message announcing school closing and delayed opening/early closing to families using the "contact 1" and "contact 2" phone numbers provided by the families.
  • In most cases, the District will also send an SMS text message to "contact 1" and "contact 2" numbers, however, you must first do a one time "accept" to allow your cell phone to receive the text messages.  Text the word YES to 67587 and you will be enrolled for future text messages.
