Cascade Christian Schools makes every effort to make decisions on school delays and closures as early as possible. Decisions about late start or no school days, if not made the previous evening, as much as possible will be communicated by 6:00 a.m. using the ParentAlert System primarily and then, depending on the type of emergency, FlashAlert Messenger:
CCS uses RenWeb’s ParentAlert to send messages via text message in the event of an emergency or inclement weather. These alerts are automatically sent to the contacts on file in RenWeb. No registration is required. Please be sure your contact information is always up to date.
Additionally, parents may receive notifications by subscribing to FlashAlert Messenger. To receive notifications on your mobile device, download the FlashAlert Messenger App.
To view current alerts, click the FlashAlert button. FlashAlert
Note: Please make yourself familiar with the Emergency & Inclement Weather procedures in place for Cascade Christian Schools. These procedures are intended to ensure the safety of our staff and families, while continuing to provide high-quality care for our students.
It is always the parents’ decision as to whether inclement weather conditions prevent them from safely transporting their child to school. If parents believe that driving conditions are unsafe, they should report their child’s absence to the school.
If timing of the emergency permits, posting of snow delays or closure announcements will go on the FlashAlert website, which automatically updates the schools’ status to area radio and television stations.
Parents may view and receive notices regarding Cascade Christian Schools’ closure information by visiting FlashAlert.net, clicking Seattle/Western Washington, then South Sound Privates, and then Cascade Christian Schools.
We use the following guidelines to make decisions regarding weather-related school closures:
Delayed start means:
A mid-day weather closure after school has begun for the day means that parents will be notified to pick up their students as soon as they are able. Childcare (early learning centers), Cougar Club Childcare, and Recreation activities will also CLOSE.
The FlashAlert website automatically updates the following local area radio and television stations of our schools’ status:
During delayed starts: These programs will operate from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (except for Puyallup Early Learning Center, which will operate from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) unless otherwise specifically announced.
During school closures:
Please be aware that in the event of extreme inclement weather during non-school days (e.g., Christmas break, national holidays, summer break), the Childcare, Elementary Cougar Club Childcare programs, Thrive summer programs, and all Recreation programs may need to reduce operating hours or close. You may obtain further information by checking FlashAlert.net or by calling the campus elementary or early learning office.
