Winter Weather is Coming – Changes to Emergency Update Email and Text Alerts!

schoolbussnow We tend to close schools if it is unsafe to operate buses or if school environmental systems are not working. When staff members are unable to travel to work from on or off island, or if weather forecasts are serious enough, we may elect to close schools or open on a delayed schedule. For more detailed information click here.
In order to get immediate updates via email and/or text you must register with the Flash Alert Network at http://www.flashalert.net. The old School Report system has migrated to Flash Alert so even if you were previously receiving alerts, you must re-register with Flash Alert.

Questions about Flash Alert should be addressed to Director of Transportation David Bynum.
