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 SMS text and email.
  • The District will use school messenger to send a SMS Text and Email announcing school closing and delayed opening/early closing to families using the "contact 1" and "contact 2" information provided by the families.
  • In order to receive the text, a family 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 (if you are one of the two primary contacts for a child).
