• Closings and Delays Notification

    Should weather or an emergency situation occur resulting in the closing of school, the school district will use several methods to notify the public.

    The Blackboard Connect Parent Notification System

    Text messages will be sent to phones and e-mail addresses via Blackboard Connect.

    • For morning closings before school has started, the system will utilize the primary contact phone number and e-mail address in Infinite Campus.
    • For closings and early dismissals that occur after school has begun, the system will utilize all contact numbers and e-mails in Infinite Campus, including emergency contacts.

    Certain messages may be sent to specific grades or buildings, as opposed to district-wide. For example, a message about the cancellation of evening activities may only be sent to parents of secondary school students if no other classes or schedules are affected.
