If you haven’t already done so, now is a good time to activate a FlashAlert Newswire account so that you receive a text message on your cell phone or via email every time the district posts an emergency notice on the Internet.
All you need is an e-mail address and you can register up to three e-mail or text message addresses. You’ll need your cell phone in hand when you begin because a secure code will be sent before activation to verify that you are the holder of the cell phone being registered.

The district still notifies local media whenever there is a delay or closure and posts information at www.asd5.org.
This is an added feature to the district’s emergency notification system. The district will continue to notify local media whenever there is a closure and continue to post emergency information and weather-related closures on the Web site.
