Emergency Early Dismissal

Be sure to return your emergency early dismissal form. If we do not receive the form back indicating where your child(ren) is to go, we will conclude that you want your child(ren) to ride home as they normally are scheduled.

Keeping you informed is a top priority at Unity Point School. That’s why we have adopted the Blackboard Connect Notification Service (previously AlertNow), which will allow us to send a telephone or e-mail message to you providing important information about school events or emergencies.

We anticipate using Blackboard Connect to notify you of school delays or cancellations due to inclement weather, as well as remind you about absences, various events, including report card distribution, open house, field trips, and more.

In the event of an emergency at school, you can have peace of mind knowing that you will be informed immediately by phone. The successful delivery of information is dependent upon accurate contact information for each student, so please make certain that we have your most current phone numbers and email address. If this information changes during the year, please let us know immediately.

PLEASE do not call school, this simply ties-up telephone lines that are needed to get info out. Also do not call school employees at home. Instead listen to the radio, TV or log on to our website for school closing information. In the event you do call school, a taped message will play indicating if there is school and other info you may need to know. If you do not see or hear Unity Point mentioned, then you may assume there will be school.

School closing information can be found on the following television and radio stations:
