How to Receive Inclement Weather Information

How to Receive Inclement Weather Notifications

With inclement weather moving in this week, we wanted to share a few reminders on how you can receive or find this information. As a reminder, you may receive some info automatically while other sources you need to proactively subscribe to or look up:

1)  District-wide emails:  Parents/guardians listed as contacts in JMC will automatically receive a SchoolMessenger email from “” and a phone call to up to 3 phone numbers as listed in JMC (unless you have opted out).  Make sure to check your JMC account to update phone numbers and emails you wish to receive notifications at!

2)  West Marshall Trojans CSD Facebook Page:  Info posted nearly immediately after a decision is made. Be sure to like/follow our page!

3)  West Marshall CSD Twitter:  Info posted nearly immediately after a decision is made.   Be sure to like/follow our feed!

4)  SMS Text Message:  Parents/guardians with listed cell phone numbers in JMC can OPT IN to recieve an SMS text message.  If you missed the information a few weeks ago about how to sign up, all you need to do is send “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number 67587 to sign up.

5)  Local Media Outlets:   Through KCCI, WHO13, Local5 (WeAreIowa), and KIX 101.1, you can sign up to receive a notification through their mobile app or website.

Visit our WMCSD website for a direct link to the “Winter Weather Information” document that includes the links to sign up and additional info on our protocol.

Please be sure to forward or share this information with anyone who may be providing care for your student(s) and would need to find out this information quickly and who are not listed in JMC.  It’s also imperative to ensure that your contact information is up to date in JMC so you do not miss out on these messages!

Thank you for your partnership as we work to keep everyone informed about emergency weather-related delays and closures!
