Opt In for School Closing Alerts
There are several ways to receive information when schools are closed. In addition to checking the BSD website and social media platforms (@BSDk12), you can choose to Opt In to receive notifications.
1. Sign up for text message alerts from @BSDalerts (no Twitter account required). BSD has created a Twitter account for notifying the community via text messaging about school closings, delays, early dismissals, and other urgent information. The @BSDalerts account is a way for parents, students, staff, and the community to sign up for these emergency notifications without having a Twitter account. To sign up, simply send a text to 40404 with the message Follow @BSDalerts. (Standard text message rates may apply, so this system will be used for emergency notifications only.) Please note that you do not need to have or set up a Twitter account to receive these notifications. To stop receiving text messages from @BSDalerts, simply text Unfollow @BSDalerts to 40404.
2. Subscribe to our monthly electronic newsletter by sending an email to email@example.com.
3. Receive updates via text or email through the State of Delaware School Closing system. You can create an account at https://denotificationservices.bbcportal.com/.
