Inclement Weather / Emergency Closures
In the event of emergencies and unexpected school closures, the Mt. Angel School District uses the FlashAlert Messenger system and ParentSquare for notifying staff, parents, students, and the public.
ParentSquare messages will go out via email, text and voice phone calls using the email and phone numbers registered with the school district through the student registration process.
The FlashAlert system is what news organizations use when posting school closures due to inclement weather. This system also has the ability for users to register up to 3 email addresses and download the Android or iOS app to your phone in order to get emergency alerts sent directly to your phone from the FlashAlert system. You will receive information from the Mt. Angel School District at the same time as the media!
Registering in the FlashAlert system is NOT required, status can still be checked using the link above.
The FlashAlert system is NOT for day-to-day communications, but rather for emergency alerts and information.

Icy, snow packed, and/or flooded roads, power outages or other unsafe conditions may make it necessary to delay the beginning of a school day, end the school day early or close schools.
School District officials will check roads early each morning when conditions warrant. We will make every effort to have decisions made by 6:00 a.m. and post information to local stations. Most local radio and television stations will carry emergency information. The "Closure and Emergency Status" link above also provides up-to-date information regarding the status of the school district.
1. TWO-HOUR DELAY
Morning bus runs will be delayed two hours, as will the start of school.
2. SCHOOL CLOSURE
School are closed, classes will not be held and buses will not run. When school is closed, all extra-curricular activities and practices are also cancelled.
3. EARLY CLOSURE
There may be occasions when school is closed early. This is usually due to unexpected power outages or weather conditions that rapidly occur creating immediate unsafe travel conditions. When school is closed all extra-curricular activities and practices are also cancelled.
