Some delays being experienced in receiving text messages from Iowa School Alerts

Let’s hope that the old saying that when March “comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb” is true! The past two weeks have brought significant snowfall, ice, wind, and fog causing multiple cancellations of professional development opportunities and even some office closures. Recently, some cell phone users have experienced delays in receiving the text messages shared via Iowa School Alerts. U.S. Cellular customers have been especially impacted by the delays. If you are experiencing delays in receiving messages, please contact your cell service provider. Delays are typically not the fault of the Iowa School Alerts system but have to do with how individual service providers handle and relay the messages.
