Dear Parents:
Sometimes we have to close school, delay the start of school, or release early because of bad weather. This is the annual reminder of procedures for school closures or schedule changes due to inclement weather.

When the decision has been made to close school or delay the start, we rely on local radio and television stations for notifications. Closure and delayed start information will ordinarily be broadcast by 6:30 a.m. Closure information will also be posted on the district website at www.albany.k12.or.us.

Our district subscribes to FlashAlert. This service forwards school closure information to local radio and television stations. Staff, parents, or community members wishing to receive these notices directly can register at http://www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=879. Notifications will be sent to you via email.

There are no costs to the recipients for using the email or app notifications.

Subscribers should be aware that some email spam filters can prevent messages from being received.

Estimados Padres de Familia:
A veces tenemos que clausurar la escuela, empezar tarde o salir temprano, por causa del mal clima. Esta carta anual es para recordarles de los procedimientos que usamos cuando debemos clausurar la escuela o cambiar los horarios por causa del mal clima.
Cuando la decisión de la clausura de la escuela o la de empezar más tarde ha sido tomada,
dependemos de las radios locales y las estaciones de televisión. La información sobre la clausura y el retraso de las clases, por lo general se empezará a transmitir desde las 6:30 am. La información sobre la clausura estará también publicada en el lugar de la red del distrito en www.albany.k12.or.us.

Nuestro distrito está subscrito a un programa que envía mensajes de alerta llamado FlashAlert. Este servicio envía información de los cierres de la escuela a las estaciones de radio y televisión locales. Los miembros del personal, padres o miembros de la comunidad que desean recibir estas notificaciones directamente pueden registrarse en http://www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=879. Las notificaciones luego serán enviadas vía correo electrónico. Para aquellos de ustedes que tienen una tableta o teléfono inteligente, pueden recibir mensajes bajando la aplicación “FlashAlert Messenger app”. Esta aplicación está disponible en Google Play o en la tienda iTunes app store. No hay costos
para los suscriptores por recibir notificaciones vía correo electrónico o la aplicación. Ahora
mismo, seria bueno ingresar a su cuenta de “FlashAlert” para asegurar que su información de contacto este actualizada.

Todas las direcciones de correos electrónicos registradas en FlashAlert se mantendrán
confidenciales. Los subscriptores deben tener en cuenta que algunos filtros en contra de “spam”
(correos no deseados), podrían impedir que reciba mensajes.
A continuación están algunas de las estaciones de radio y televisión que serán notificadas de los cierres de las escuelas:

Estaciones de Radio FM:

**El canal de televisión puede variar de acuerdo al área de escucha.
Si es necesario clausurar la escuela por el mal clima, el Día de los Presidentes en febrero y la semana después del fin del año escolar en junio, normalmente son días designados para recuperar los días perdidos por el mal clima.

Si usted tiene alguna pregunta acerca de los procedimientos mencionados anteriormente, por favor comuníquese con su escuela o con el Centro de Bienvenida al 541-704-2376.

Atentamente,
J. Tim Mills
Superintendente
