How to sign up for school alerts through GovDelivery.
The Ruthven-Ayrshire School District has signed up to take part in a new notification
system offered by the State of Iowa called "GovDelivery" This program gives
parents, the media and others the opportunity to sign up to receive e-mail notifications
directly when we have cancelled classes, or will be dismissing early or starting late due to
weather or other factors. This service, which was developed by IT staff at the
Department of Administrative Services, is
free of charge to you and the school.
The State funded the development of this program through the IOWAccess initiative, which
seeks to bring more e-government services to the people of Iowa. And because the
system is funded and operated by the state, you can be assured that your e-mail address
will not be sold to anyone and you will not receive advertisements or spam due to
enrolling the program.
You can sign up for either text alerts or email alerts by going here: http://bit.ly/gtra-alerts. If you would like to recieve both you do have to sign up once fore each.
During sign up you can choose which topics you would like to recieve notices for.
(Please note that some wireless services providers may charge you for receiving e-mails or text messages. You are responsible for those charges.)
We will still make sure that local media outlets are notified when there's a change in our
classes so notices will still be made on the radio, but we hope you will take advantage of
this opportunity to be directly notified as well!!
If you have any questions about signing up for GovDelivery, please contact the
school's administration office.
