"Information about school closures can generally be found on local TV and radio stations and their accompanying websites, including KATU, KOIN, KGW, and KOPB, as well as online at www.flashalert.net. We encourage all families to sign up to receive Flash Alert notifications. (The media stations usually begin broadcasting such information after 6:00 a.m. and update every 15 minutes.) When possible MRA will also post closures or school delay information on the school’s website (and app once we have one in place) and Facebook page, and through the MRA Parent e-mail blast.
In the event that a storm develops during the school day and it appears that travel conditions will deteriorate, children will be sent home early. Parents will be notified using the same avenues as listed above and by phone if possible. Radio stations may not necessarily carry news of early dismissal. It is the responsibility of the parent to see to it that a child is picked up in a timely manner in such circumstances. You may also reference www.flashalert.net for up to date emergency school closure." I have included screenshots of what to do when signing up for the Molalla River Academy FlashAlert.
