Is it a snow day?

Remember the list? In times past, we huddled around the AM radio on those snowy mornings, waiting to hear if our school district was called. These days, we often have to check the school web sites for the happy word (or not) before the sleds and toboggans are pulled out of the garage.

Some districts have weather hot lines and automated robo-callers to help get the word out. It’s always nice to know early, but no one likes a call too early in the morning. A text message alert is a great way to keep families informed… if they’re willing to give up their mobile numbers.

What does your school district do to keep folks in the know (about the snow)?
