Inclement weather notices:
With the winter weather seeming to click into high gear today, I would like to remind you of how to know if there is or is not school on a questionable day. Here are the ways to get the informaiton in the order I update them on a day when school is cancelled unexpectedly:
1. Phone tree: Our phone tree system calls each number listed for a family with the message in the order listed in Gradelink until it gets a pick-up (it does time out after so many tries). If possible, I try to activate this by 6 am.
2. ICA Facebook closed group
3. ICA phone message (360-221-0919)
4. ICA webpage (front page)
5. TV/radio. I don't contact them directly any longer, but it is most often the case that if the South Whidbey School District it listed as not having school or running two hours late, ICA will be following the same schedule for the day.
If there were a power outage or some other unforseen event requiring us to dismiss school during the school day, the phone tree would be activated with the message that students will need to be picked up. Note: If our power is out, we are required to close school after two hours.
Since my power just flickered, I think I'll sign off for today!
Enjoy the blustery evening!
