Call Out & Closure Info

In the event of an emergency situation or school closure, we use multiple communication channels to provide parents, students, and the community with information.

Automated Calling System (TRZ Communications)

The district’s mass notification automated calling system may be used for school closures and emergencies. This method of contacting families relies on up-to-date emergency phone numbers for each student. You will recieve calls on your registered number for:

  • In the event of early morning school cancellation due to inclement weather.
  • If school closes during the school day or is dismissed early.
  • In the event of a school-wide or district-wide emergency.

If you wish to opt out of this calling system, please notify the school district office at 740-674-5203. To play back a recent call out, dial 800-846-4976.
