This morning at 5am, my husband's phone went off with an email notification. A few minutes later, it started ringing. Then a text came in.

Yep, it's a snow day. He gets every notification possible for some reason, while I just get a text.

How do you find out when your child has a snow day?

I had to sign up to get texts. Before that I had to watch the news.

A robo call from the district? That's what DH gets. I didn't sign up for that.

Quoting Flaca43: We get a phone call.

The district that I work for shows up on the news, I get 3 phone calls & 2 texts. They want to make sure we know.

I never watch the news, but that's what we had to do growing up... I remember sitting in front of the TV waiting for our district to scroll across the bottom. I'm so glad it's easier now with texts and email.

The school here uses one call to inform parents of stuff. Snow days wouldn't be something I'd get notified of, but they call for other things, reminders and such.

We had an option, phone, text or email.  Not sure what dh signed up for.  I signed up for the email and the text, I think.

yesterday, as I was getting dd after ski practice, I got notified of the snow day by the head master who just happened to be picking up her kid too.  Lol.
