School Closing and
Safety is a top priority for CJDS. One of the most important tools in the event of a school closing or emergency is swift communication. CJDS has the capacity to send blast messages via text, to your mobile device in order to provide you with direct and timely school closing or emergency information.
The school will conduct a test of our emergency texting system on Tuesday, September 4th at 5:00 PM; otherwise, the system will only be used in emergency and school closing situations.
