A note about weather-related announcements

As you might already be aware, there was some kind of technical glitch when we put out the Nixle alert about today’s delayed opening. Some people received multiple texts; some people received an email but no text. We also hear that most people who didn’t get the texts early this morning eventually received them after 10:00 am. Too little, too late, right? We have contacted Nixle and will report back when we find out what happened. In the meantime, we want to offer a reminder about how we communicate weather-related announcements. Any closing or delay will be announced before 5:30 am. Official Manchester School District updates are available on: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter: Usually the first and fastest notifications. MSD web site: The alert will always be at the top of the home page in red. Nixle: Sign up HERE for an account to receive text notifications. If you already have an account, check your settings to make sure you are subscribed to “public schools” alerts. You can also adjust your personal preferences to receive email notifications as well as texts. WMUR-TV WHDH-TV WCVB-TV NBC Boston TV WZID radio WGIR radio WJYY radio The postings don’t always happen simultaneously, but it’s our goal to submit them to all of our communication platforms within 15 minutes. We encourage you to monitor various sources of information to ensure you don’t miss an announcement in case one fails to function properly. We are happy to hear that most families who did not receive the Nixle text today got news of the delay in other ways.
