When there are circumstances that could lead to the cancellation of school, we try to make that decision as early as possible so parents can plan. We don’t always have the information necessary to make those decisions as early as we would like, but we try to communicate prior to buses leaving to pick up students at 6:05 a.m. In any case, our goal is to communicate as early as possible. Below are ways to stay informed.
1. We will always post the school closings to Twitter first. Just follow @LaubNRSD
. We also post to the District Facebook page: @RoyaltonSchools
2. Make sure to have up-to-date information in Gateway, our student information system. If you need to update your information after it was submitted at the beginning of the year, contact your school office. Our automated phone messaging system pulls phone numbers from that data to make calamity day calls. Emails are also pulled from that data.
3. After sending an alert message, we contact the local television stations. We contact channels 3, 5, 8 and 19 (in that order).
4. Always check the homepage on the website. As long as there is power, a notice will be posted there as well. Don’t forget to refresh the page if you are leaving it open and waiting for an update.
Please note that the automated phone messaging system can be used for different types of notifications, so always be sure to listen to the message when it arrives.
As always, if there are any questions/concerns, please call or email.
