Snow Closings Text Alerts: 12 Days of Techmas, Day 13?

Bonus Tip! Text Alerts for Snow Closings and Delays

My school, here in the greater Boston area, does not call teachers or activate the emergency phone tree in case of snow cancellations. Instead, fire up your AM radio and listen to the announcer read through the cancellations list.

Just kidding! Instead of sitting next to the radio, sign up for Text Alerts! As soon as Dr. Jackson notifies the broadcast media, you will get a text message on your cell phone notifying you about the cancellation or delay. This is a free service offered by WBZ in Boston.

Many of us signed up for this service in past years, but if you are new, or never signed up, or need to update/conform your settings, I've typed up step-by-step instructions on how to do it.

Of course, if you don't have a cell phone, I always post the cancellation or delay on the HHS website, Facebook, and Twitter feeds, just as soon as I get my text alert!  :)
