We will utilize a phone notification system, AlertNow, to communicate emergencies and school closings.

  • It is imperative that you keep the school informed of all phone numbers where you may be reached.

You may also tune in to WCMY 1430 AM or check the internet at www.mywebtimes.com between 6:45 and 7:45 A.M. for notice of school closings if the weather is questionable. In addition, notifications will also be posted on the school's Facebook account.
