Does your child have a severe allergy? Is there medication or supplement that your child needs to take during the school day? Are you wondering if you should keep your child home from school?
Forms & FAQs around student health can be found on our District Nurse's page.
Closing or delaying school because of inclement weather involves several factors: weather conditions that are both current and predicted to occur during the course of the coming day, road conditions and closures, and the ability of the schools to prepare for students to arrive.
When schools are closed, all athletic events and practices are also canceled.
In the event of a school closing or delay, all School District of Menomonee Falls families will be notified using the following resources:
- Automated text and phone call message
- District website fallsschools.org
- Local television and radio broadcasts
- Social Media (Twitter and Facebook)
The School District of Menomonee Falls uses a service called School Messenger to send automated phone calls, text messages and emails to parents and guardians about school-related safety, weather-related closings, reminders and absences.
Update Contact Information
If you are the parent or guardian of a Falls Schools student, please make sure your contact information is up to date in Skyward.
Please know the safety of our students and your family is our first priority. We will always make decisions out of caution and, at the same time, communicate with you early and often.
If the school district decides to remain open, but as a parent or guardian, you feel the weather conditions are not safe, your child will be excused as long as you notify your child's school.
Starting Friday, October 12, 2018, the School District of Menomonee Falls will add text messaging capabilities for emergency notifications and important school information. On Friday, October 12, 2018, at 6 p.m., SDMF families who have a cell phone number listed in PowerSchool will receive a text message, asking if they would like to “opt-in” to receive important information from the district via SMS text messaging.
If you’d like to receive notifications via text, information, please reply with “Y” or “Yes” when you receive your verification message. If you do not reply, you will not receive any further text messages from our schools. The message you receive will come from our ‘short code’, 67587 and read similar to the following:
“School Messenger notifications. Reply Y to subscribe or STOP to cancel, message and data rates may apply. Msg freq varies. Visit schoolmessenger.com/txt for info”
Here are some things to keep in mind about texting:
1. Opting INTO text messaging will NOT opt you out of phone calls and emails, it’s just another way for us to try to reach you.
2. We will always try to keep frequency and audience in mind when sending notifications.
3. You will only be able to receive text messages if your cell phone number is on file with the district in Powerschool. If you do not receive a message on Oct 12, your cell phone may not be on file with us. Please contact your school’s administrative assistant if you believe your number is not in PowerSchool.
4. To opt out of all text messages from SchoolMessenger, visit http://www.schoolmessenger.com/txtmsg/ or reply with “STOP” to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt-in, but later decide to opt-out, simply send “STOP” to 67587 at any time, or reply “STOP” to any message from our organization.
5. The SDMF does not reimburse for any charges associated with sending or receiving text messages. Please check with your wireless carrier for information about your mobile service plan and any possible charges related to text messaging.
