Message from Superintendent Mike Hammer:

This test will occur through a text message and may impact your students.

In the event of a national emergency, we would also provide specific district related details through our own alert system as well.

School Security – National test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS)

 On Wednesday, October 3, beginning at 2:18 p.m. Eastern Time, there will be a nationwide test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of IPAWS and its Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) to (1) assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message, and (2) determine whether improvements are needed.
