Re:   Automated (mass) calling


The automated calling service for school cancellations or alerts can be quite convenient and helpful but, unfortunately, it is not without its flaws.  In the event of inclement weather, please check local TV, radio, and this website for notices regarding school cancellations or delays. 

When an early-morning cancellation or delay is announced, only one (1) phone number will be called per student.  This number is typically your home phone number. 

Only in emergencies (an unscheduled early-out once the school day has started, for instance) will multiple contacts be called.

If you are routinely missing calls, please communicate with your child’s school to make certain the correct phone number is listed as your child’s primary number.

Thank you.

School closing information may also be found at the following sites.  It is advised that you check more than one site.
