What Is The Best Way To Get Information About School Closures or Delays
WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL CLOSURES OR DELAYS?
There are several things you can do to find out whether Mukilteo schools are closed:
You are receiving this message because you are a subscriber to Explorer’s and/or the distict's email news service. As a subscriber, you will receive a message as soon as a decision has been made regarding a cancelation or delayed start of school.
The school district uses a system called Blackboard Connect to send important messages to parents via telephone, text, and email. This automated system uses the contact information that is listed in your child’s student records. Using the Blackboard Connect Portal, you can select whether you want to receive school closure or delay notifications by text, or email, or both. (Because of the early hour such notices are typically issued, we do not send them by telephone.) To change your settings, go to the Blackboard Connect Portal. If you have not registered for a Blackboard Connect account, you’ll find detailed instructions by using the “Quick Start Guide” that you’ll find on the left of the welcome page.
The School District Website:
Information about school closures will be posted on the school district’s website as soon as it becomes available. You can find the website at www.mukilteo.wednet.edu.
Listen to Local Radio and Television Stations:
Listen in the early morning and throughout the day. Here are a few radio stations that provide regular reports: KRKO (1380 AM), KOMO (1000 AM) or KIRO-FM (97.3 FM). As for TV stations, watch the morning news on KOMO (Channel 4), KING (Channel 5), KIRO (Channel 7), or KCPQ (Channel 13).
Check the FlashAlert Website:
The status of all local school districts in Western Washington is listed each morning on the FlashAlert website. You can access information that has been posted onto FlashAlert by the Mukilteo School District by going HERE.
Get A Text Message From Other Services:
FlashAlert and most radio and television stations offer services that will send you a text message in the event of a school closure or delay.
WHAT IF THERE IS NO ANNOUNCEMENT OF SCHOOL CLOSURES OR DELAYS?
It means school will open at the normal time and school buses will operate on their normal routes.
