When the decision is made to close schools due to inclement weather, District 70 uses an emergency notification system to deliver phone calls and emails about&nbsp;<strong>school closings or safety emergencies</strong>.<br /><br />&nbsp;There also now is an option to opt-in to receive the information via text by texting <strong>67587</strong> with either <strong>Y</strong> or <strong>YES</strong>&nbsp;as the message you send.&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;<em>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&nbsp;<a href="http://www.d70schools.org/?sect=dept&amp;func=cust&amp;dept_id=24&amp;cust_id=64">FAQ</a>.</em> Thu, 15 Dec 2016 12:25:59 -0600 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#5082 Strategic Plan 2016-21 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=2#4936 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/districtround.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> Voices heard!
