Our school is on the KARE 11 School Alert e-mail system

Here’s how it works.

When our school closes, cancels, or delays school, that information is automatically created into an e-mail and sent to parents who have signed up for School Alert.

Parents can sign up by going to kare11.com and click School Alert under the “Morning” section. All parents have to do is select our school and enter an e-mail address. Then, anytime school is delayed, closed, or is canceled, parents will receive an e-mail alert.

Parents are asked not to call the school, bus company, or radio stations to find out if school is closed.

Instead, please listen carefully to any of these stations or log-on to the web-sites for school-related announcements.
