Hints for

In the November 24th blog entry "Notification Reminder for School Delays and Cancellations," directions were given for signing up for emails and texts from

A couple of comments on the blog indicate that some are having problems with using the website, so we wanted to give some helpful hints for using the website.

If you are just checking the website to see if Wawasee Schools are delayed or canceled, you need to look on the left side of the website under Check Status and put in Syracuse's zip code 46567 or your zip code. You then need to choose a distance. If you are using your own zip code, please make sure you use a distance that would include the town of Syracuse. When you click on Display Results, you will get a list of school corporations who are using and are within the distance of the zip code you have chosen that have made the decision to delay or cancel for the day.

If you have signed up for an account and for text messages and emails and are not receiving those, please do the following:

Login into the website; click on Account Info (upper right hand side) and choose Notification Methods. Make sure you have given a valid email address. If you have also given cell phone information in order to receive texts (following the November 24th instructions), make sure you have checked the box behind Is Cell Phone? for the cell phone information given. Make sure you have chosen a mile radius under Display Mile Radius and that you have chosen No under Disable Notifications.

Double-check under Account Info and Select Organizations and School Districts to see that you have dragged Wawasee Community School Corporation into the right hand side under Notification School Districts.

Hopefully, this will help those of you having difficulty getting emails and/or texts.

The weather is continuing to get worse and I think it is in the school's best interest to have the students leave early in order to maintain safety of our children. It would be much appreciated. Thank you.
