Reminder regarding school communication for severe weather and emergencies

posted Nov 14, 2019, 9:48 AM by Exira-EHK Administrator
Dear Exira-EHK Families,
A reminder that Exira-EHK Community School District utilizes the “JMC Messenger” system as the primary method to send weather and emergency notices.
In addition to "JMC Messenger" and school Alerts, the District will also send weather and emergency notices to the following stations and via the following avenues:
  • KNOD, KDSM, KJAN Radio
  • WHO TV
  • WOI TV
  • School District Facebook Page
  • School District Twitter Feed 
JMC Messenger and School Alert provides Exira-EHK Schools the capability to call and send text and voice messages directly to cell and home phones in the event of adverse weather or emergency situations that require school late starts, early dismissals, or cancellations. If you have not set up your account please contact Steve Humphrey or Beth Peppers.
As inclement weather season approaches I would like to assure parents and patrons that at all times, the safety of students and staff is the underlying basis for determining when to cancel school, start late, or send school buses home early.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding when school delays and cancellations occur.
Trevor Miller
