Update FlashAlert subscriptions

With winter weather around the corner, now is a good time to check on your subscriptions to FlashAlert, the system the school district uses to give parents information about school closures.

As part of a routine cleanup, many addresses were removed from the FlashAlert system earlier this fall. Access the system at flashalert.net/news.html?id=19 to check on the status of your subscriptions. Use the Subscribe button or the Manage My Existing Subscriptions link. You can also access the FlashAlert system from the district website at wlwv.k12.or.us using the Inclement Weather link. A app for Android and iPhones is availabe; it will prove a more stable notification than traditional text messages to your phone.
