During the winter weather season, conditions occasionally cause us to delay the start of school, or to send students home early ahead of inclement weather.
If you’d like to be alerted to school closings or delays via text message, please subscribe to our Remind weather alerts.
(Please note that this is just one of the many ways we alert the public about school closings and delays, and should not be relied upon as your sole source of information.)
Receiving ISD 544 Text Alerts
Starting in August 2014, we will be utilizing the Remind.com service to provide text notifications to subscribers. There is no cost to you, and you don’t need a Remind.com account to receive our alerts.
To receive alerts via text:
- Compose a text message to 218-389-4372 – the message you send to subscribe is @544alerts
- You will receive a confirmation text telling you’ve successfully subscribed to the text alert system.
As messages are sent to the @544alerts account, you will automatically receive them as text messages on your phone.
Please note that receiving texts may cost you money if you do not subscribe to a texting plan.
If you’d like to stop receiving our alerts via text, send the text stop to 218-389-4372
You can receive Remind.com alerts via email, too. Please visit this page, click email, and enter your email address.
Please note that this is just one of the many ways we alert the public about school closings and delays, and should not be relied upon as your sole source of information. Internet traffic and other factors can often delay text message and email transmissions. We also announce school closings and delays on our website (www.isd544.org), on local radio, and via Fargo television stations.
