School Closings, Emergency Notifications
Snowflake 1

District 70 uses an emergency notification system to deliver phone calls and emails about school closings or safety emergencies. There now is an option to opt-in to receive the information via text by texting 67587 with either Y or YES as the message you send. 
At about 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 12, a text message from that same shortcode of 675-87 will be sent to all cell phone numbers listed in District 70's PowerSchool student information database. If you want to receive emergency messages via text, please opt-in by replying Y or Yes. 

If you do not receive a text message on Monday and have not already opted in, it’s possible that the number the District has in PowerSchool is either missing or incorrect. In that case, please contact your child’s school office with updated information.
This text (SMS) service only will be used in the event of school closings or a school emergency. For more information about school closings, please read the FAQ.

Aerial View of Construction dated June 26, 2016
While construction is moving along well and we are very excited about the future for Copeland Manor School, it is evident from this impressive aerial view that much ground work will be required as we look to restore the grounds and grassy areas upon completion of the new gymnasium. As a result, and with the removal of the library mobile, we will work to redirect children for play, as well as entrance and exit procedures come fall.

In the meantime, the energy at the school is exciting and we look forward to celebrating the many new features with our community in the 2016-2017 year.
