Snow Day/School Closing Notification
We use an automated telephone broadcasting system to communicate school closings to you. For snow days, the call will be launched between 5:30 - 6:30 a.m., or the night before if we know ahead of time. The numbers you have listed in My Student's Progress as home and mobile will be called through the automated system. We will also post messages on our social media accounts and website as well.
Please call Kerri O'Malley at email@example.com if you would like to change the number(s) listed in the My Student's Progress School Database.
St. Pius X will also announce its school closings over the television. The school closing is phoned into Channel 9. Channel 9 then distributes the information to the other local channels. Please look for “St. Pius X High School” when bad weather occurs. Some local channels have not always been reliable in the past. If you are unsure, check the website www.stpiusxhs-kc.com the notification will be on the homepage.
