Emergency Communications
Communications to Families:  SchoolMessenger System
The district uses SchoolMessenger to very quickly place a phone call and/or email to all families and staff.  If there is an issue that will impact the start of the school day, we will send a robo-call to all families at around 6 a.m.  The same message will also be sent in an email.  In order for this system to work best, please keep your contact information up-to-date.  You will need to call or email your child's school to make any changes.

Communication to Media:  FlashAlert.net

Our regional emergency communications system is FlashAlert.net  We contact this service as soon as the decision is made at around 5:30 a.m. Below is the list of television and radio stations that receives and posts our FlashAlert messages.  The message is also available on their website, www.flashalert.net
