The Knoxville School District has signed up to take part in a new notification system offered by the State of Iowa called “Iowa School Alerts.” This program gives parents, the media and others the opportunity to sign up to receive e-mail notifications directly when we have cancelled classes, or will be dismissing early or starting late due to weather or other factors. This service, which was developed by IT staff at the Department of Administrative Services, is free of charge to you and the school. The State funded the development of this program through the IOWAccess initiative, which seeks to bring more e-government services to the people of Iowa . Due to the system being funded and operated by the state, you can be assured that your e-mail addresses will not be sold to anyone, and you will not receive advertisements or spam due to enrolling in the program.
Here's how you can take advantage of this free service & sign up for e-mail alerts:
We will still make sure that local media outlets are notified when there's a change in our classes so notices will still be made on the television and radio, but we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to be directly notified as well!
If you have any questions about signing up for Iowa School Alerts, please contact the school's administration office or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
