Emergency Closing Alerts

In the event of an emergency closing, an email and phone call will go out to the primary contact for every household in the district. Additionally, the district website will have information about the closing on the home page and the closing will be reported to the Emergency Closing Center website. That site is the news media’s feed for closing information.
