General:

As we get nearer to winter weather, be reminded that weather announcements will be communicated several ways:

  1. Posted on Trinity’s website.
  2. An email to parents.
  3. A text to those parents and students who are on the texting list.
  4. Announced on local radio stations – KSOU and KIWA.

Concerning the texting list (#3), there are a few points of interest. First, parents are automatically on the list. Secondly, students can be added to the list by request. And finally, a practice text will be sent out this afternoon at about 2:30 p.m. With this test we are checking to make sure the parents and students who were on the list last year rolled over and that the new parents of freshmen are added. There is no need to respond to the text. The only people who need to contact the office are those parents who did not receive the practice text, or those who wish to add a student to the list. Thank you for your help with this.

Thank you for the note and gift of appreciation.
