Severe Weather Safety

 

If the ISD 728 schools are to be closed (early dismissal) because of storms or other emergencies, the ISD 728’s school cancellation announcements will be communicated in the following methods:

  • ParentLink:   All parents/guardians who have telephone numbers listed with the school district will receive a pre-recorded call at the primary number on file only.

  • Campus Messenger:   All parents/guardians who have an email on file will receive a message at the primary address on file only.

  • Websites:  All district and school websites are updated.

  • TV/radio news stations:  The ISD 728’s school cancellation announcements will be on WCCO Channel 4, WCCO 830 AM, KSTP TV Channels, KARE TV Channel 11, KMSP/FOX Channel 9 and provided to WQPM radio (106 FM or 1300 AM), and BOB FM radio.

  • District phone message:  The district’s pre-recorded message is updated.

  • Announcements will also be posted on the front page of the District’s Website: www.isd728.org, Facebook, Twitter and recorded on the district’s main phone greeting at (763) 241-3400.

Students will be transported to their regular bus stop or as close to home as possible, depending on conditions and circumstances.  During extremely bad weather, parents should listen for these broadcasts to insure the child's safety from bus to home.  Each family should have an emergency plan (see link to create a plan at bottom of this webpage) which a child can follow if an early dismissal occurs (key left at the neighbor’s house, go to the neighbor’s house, etc.).
