Inclement Weather Procedures

Posted on: November 22, 2016

Dear Parents:

Sometimes we have to close school, delay the start of school, or release early because of bad weather.  This is the annual reminder of procedures for school closures or schedule changes due to inclement weather.

When the decision has been made to close school or delay the start, we rely on local radio and television stations for notifications. Closure and delayed start information will ordinarily be broadcast by 6:30 a.m.  Closure information will also be posted on the district website at www.albany.k12.or.us

Our district subscribes to FlashAlert.  This service forwards school closure information to local radio and television stations.  Staff, parents, or community members wishing to receive these notices directly can register at http://www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=879.  Notifications then will be sent to you via email.  For those of you with tablets or smart phones, you can receive messages by downloading the FlashAlert Messenger app.  This app is available on Google Play or the iTunes app store.   There are no costs to the recipients for using the email or app for notifications.

All addresses registered on FlashAlert will remain confidential.  You will receive an email message once per year asking if you wish to continue your subscription and to confirm your email address.  Subscribers should be aware that some email spam filters may prevent messages from being received.

Below are some of the radio and television stations who will be notified of school closures:
