    What is the best way to stay informed of weather related and other emergency cancellations or delays?    
    1. Sign up for PowerSchool E-ALERTS! 2. Sign up for school closing alerts on the WWMT website
    3. Listen to local radio. WBET-Sturgis, WTHD-LaGrange, WLKM­-Three Rivers, WKFR, WRKR, WKMI-Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. 4. Check TV Stations. WWMT(CBS)-Kalamazoo, WNDU(NBC)-South Bend, WOOD(NBC)-Grand Rapids, WOTV(ABC)-Battle Creek, WXSP and CW7 West Michigan for all the latest information. If you don't get a phone call when school is cancelled, then our school doesn't have your correct phone number.
