District uses many methods to notify about school cancellations
When necessary, the District may delay the start of school, cancel school, or release school early due to inclement weather. The decision to close school or delay the opening of school will be made as close to 5:30 a.m. as possible to allow time to communicate this decision before most students prepare for the school day.
In the event of a school cancellation, early release, or late start, the District will use all available media to communicate effectively:
- We will use the SchoolMessenger service to send a telephone message to all employees and student families .
- A text message will be sent via Textcaster. You can sign up here.
- An email will be sent to all subscribers of RP Update, the district's electronic newsletter. You can subscribe by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Information will be shared on local TV stations (4, 5, 9, and 41).
- An update will be available via the district information line at 816-892-3988.
- The announcement will be posted on the district website, Facebook page, and via Twitter.
