Parents, staff and students wishing to receive Richland School District weather closure/delay announcements via email, text message, or push notification can sign up by going to: http://flashalert.net/news.html?id=1845 (if you already have an active account, you do not need to sign up again, but you do need to log in to your account once a year to keep it active).
When you get to that page, start the process by entering your email address and setting a password. Once the account is established, you may add one or two additional email or cell text addresses. Each new entry will require you to launch a test message to that address which will contain a two-letter code which must be entered back onto your account page to ensure that the address(es) is valid, or by clicking the link in the message.
Bear in my mind that the cell phone companies get backlogged on weather mornings as they try to keep up with the text messages, so it is recommended that you not rely entirely on text messages. We urge you to download the new, free app for iOS and Android called FlashAlert Messenger. It uses push notification to send messages directly to your phone, bypassing the cell companies' text message channel. Search for FlashAlert Messenger at the iTunes App Store (iOS) or at Google Play (Android).
