District Announcements: School Closures/ Emergencies
We are committed to providing families with accurate and prompt information in the event of inclement-weather and other urgent matters impacting our schools and community. The District uses the following methods of communication to relay urgent information to District families and the broader community.
Whenever possible, the District website will be used to communicate information regarding urgent and emergency situations, including inclement weather and school closures. Check the home page at www.hsd.k12.or.us for announcements and updates.
Flash Alert emergency notification system
The Hillsboro School District uses an Internet-based service for weather-related school closure information and to relay important information to the public in the event of an emergency. The public can sign-up for Flash Alert to receive emergency alert messages through email and/or cell phone texts. Click on the link to be directed to the site for Hillsboro School District messages.
Local Radio and TV stations will receive information and updates from the Flash Alert system regarding school district emergencies.
Alternate methods of communication, such as phone calls, broadcast phone messages, and/or letters may be used in the event of individual school situations. Please check with your child's school for information on procedures. It is essential that you provide reliable emergency contact information to your child's school to ensure you or an authorized designee can be reached quickly in the event of an emergency.
In case of inclement weather, announcements will be made indicating which zones will require alternate or snow routes for bus transportation.
