Weather Communications

  • Updates for 2021-2022

    • Sartell-St. Stephen ISD 748, Sauk Rapids-Rice, and St. Cloud Area School Districts will continue our decision-making collaboration.
    • KIDSTOP has modified their schedules based on weather. Please visit the Boys & Girls Club of Central Minnesota's Weather Closing Procedures webpage for details.  

    The Sartell-St. Stephen ISD 748, Sauk Rapids-Rice, and St. Cloud Area School Districts will weigh each weather situation and make a public announcement via our normal protocols (direct emails/texts/phone calls to families and via media outlets, our district website and social media).

    A reminder that families may modify their Skylert notification preferences at any time in Skyward Family Access (click the Skylert tab on the left menu). 

    Skylert notifications are used to communicate school delays/cancellations with families. Information is also shared on our website, social media, and local television/radio stations. 

    • Families should make sure their Skyward Family Access account is updated to receive Skylert notifications according to your preferences. For a Skylert overview, please click here.
    • Community members interested in receiving District emails/texts/phone calls for severe weather closings/delays are invited to create an account with Skylert, our emergency notification service. For instructions to help set up your account in the Skylert Community Portal, please view this handout.

    We sent a test message on Wednesday, October 27; to update your preferences, please follow the instructions above.
