Emergency school test call is next Wednesday morning
If you're a parent of a River Falls School District student, you should get a test call to your home or cell phone at 9 a.m. next Wednesday, Sept. 16. It's part of the new AlertNow emergency message system put in place by the district.
Superintendent Tom Westerhaus will deliver the test message.
The new system will be used in the coming year to deliver brief, accurate information to parents about a crisis or emergency - from a snow day closing to a school lockdown.
