Attention Regarding Our 'Alert Now' Weather System:

ALERT NOW is the phone system we are using to communicate with the public. If we have something exciting happening in the school district, "Alert Now" will call your phone and let you know. It will also be used for SNOW DAYS. If we have a snow day, you will receive a call between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. to let you know. It is very important to keep your phone numbers updated with the school secretary. If you feel you are not getting a call, please call Beth at the school.
