Inclement Weather Information
On inclement weather days, a phone notification system (ALERTNOW) will be utilized. In the morning of a delay or closure your main contact number will be called. The system will call up to six times until a person or machine answers the call. (Your answering machine must be set to pick up before the sixth ring for the system to work). No other numbers will be called at this time. You must say hello when the call is answered, and there will be a three second delay before the message is delivered. If you have caller ID the school number will be displayed. DO NOT KEEP SAYING HELLO AS THE SYSTEM NEEDS A COUPLE OF SECONDS TO BEGIN THE MESSAGE. Also, if you utilize a telemarketer zapper the call may not go through.
In the event of an early dismissal or an emergency (evacuation, lockdown, relocation) during the day ALL OF THE PHONE NUMBERS THAT WHERE SUBMITTED WILL BE CALLED. The system does not stop after the first call. If you have caller ID the school number will be displayed for an early dismissal and 411 will be displayed in an emergency situation.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR IF UPDATES OR CHANGES ARE MADE TO YOUR PHONE NUMBERS OR EMERGENCY CONTACTS THAT YOU CONTACT THE MAIN OFFICE. The system is only as good as the accuracy of the contact information.
In addition to the AlertNow system, families that have given the school their email address, will receive an email indicating a school closing or delay.
