Sign up for FlashAlert for notifications of weather-related closures or late starts

To receive the most immediate updates on closures or late starts, go to the Flash Alert Newswire website at www.flashalert.net/id/MercerIslandSD to sign up for email and text alerts, and download the free FlashAlert Messenger app for iPhone or Android devices. This site transmits school emergency information as soon as decisions have been made and depending on how you set up the messaging, you may receive text messages.

In addition to FlashAlert, emergency information is posted on the school district website at www.mercerislandschools.org,  on our Facebook page and Twitter feed, sent via the School Messenger notification system to families, and the district maintains a recorded emergency information line at 206-236-3366.

Radio and TV stations will also announce schedule changes. Changes are typically announced alphabetically by school district. No announcement typically means no schedule change is planned.

To sign up to receive emergency communications from the City of Mercer Island, visit www.mercergov.org/AlertSystem.

Please continue to listen to weather-related announcements regarding safety this winter, be prepared for changes to our normal schedules and travel safely.
