Emergency Notification Options

Emergency Notification System Options!


Should inclement weather or an emergency situation occur which would result in the closing of school, the school district will utilize a number of methods to notify the public.   Please do not rely on any one single medium, check several to be sure.

Infinite Campus Parent Notification System

The emergency calling system uses the data in Infinite Campus to make the calls.  You control your own calls/texts/emails through your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account.   When you log into your portal, on the left hand tool bar there is a choice of “contact preferences”.  After clicking on that, you will see your telephone option.  Choose which number or email, whether you want text or voice, and the types of messages you want.  To get inclement weather delays or cancellations, choose “emergency”.  You can click as many as you would like. 

District Web Site & Facebook Page

A message will be posted on the home page of the district web site and also posted on the District’s Facebook page.  This message may include more detailed information that can be included in the Infinite Campus messages.  (www.chariton.k12.ia.us)


Notifications will be made to KCCI, WHO, WOI, and KIIC Radio.  Several of these news outlets have websites in which you can sign up for alerts and notifications. Check on their web sites, typically under the weather tab, for more information.

If you have any questions or need help, contact any building office or (641) 774-5967.
